All programs funded by United Way are volunteer-made investment decisions and are selected based on alignment with its focus on reducing poverty, demonstrated impact and available dollars.
In March 2015, United Way of Greater Greensboro launched its very first Family Success Center pilot, to provide solutions that reduce poverty in Greensboro neighborhoods. This new, innovative approach brings together partners across nonprofit, business and government sectors to provide integrated servicing that meets the needs of each member of a family.
United Way is currently building a fund that will give capital to local startups and social entrepreneurs. This fund will allow new ideas to come to the table that can support breaking the cycle of poverty in greater Greensboro.
