United Way of Kentucky
JOIN THE CAUSE.
MAKE YOUR VOICE HEARD.
CREATE REAL CHANGE.
Policy change can be big or small. It can be petitioning your school board to require healthier cafeteria meals. It can be urging your government to invest more in schools, make child tax credits permanent, or make more children eligible for health insurance. Or it can be mobilizing your contacts to speak out on a critical cause, in person or online. United Way galvanizes people to speak up for change. We're amplifying individuals’ voices on important community issues. We provide a platform for people to take meaningful action that makes a difference.
BE AN ADVOCATE.
