What is a small business partner?

Small businesses are often sent multiple requests to support a variety of important causes that combat food insecurity, education disparities, and other work to meet local needs. But most people and companies rarely have the time to explore these requests in depth to determine which to give to or which will be the most sustainable and life-giving to the community.

When you give to United Way of Roanoke Valley, your gift will support these efforts and more, allowing you to invest in initiatives and programs that create long-lasting, measurable, and positive change to Strengthen Families and Youth, Promote Self-Sufficiency, and aid in Health and Crisis Intervention in the Roanoke Valley.
