2020 Partner Agencies

United Way of Northeast Georgia is committed to investing in organizations and local nonprofits that are making the most impact in our communities in the Northeast Georgia region. We partner with programs and community efforts that are working to advance the common good in our three pillar areas: basic needs, early childhood success, and workforce development. 

 

We are leading the nonprofit sector in measuring the impact of our investments, and in bringing together multiple sectors to ensure that every man, woman, and child has access to quality education, financial stability, and a healthy lifestyle.
