Every year, we help raise funds through company campaigns and special events on behalf of local service-based agencies (nonprofits) — a vital role we play so they can focus on what they do best: serving their communities. But fundraising is not the only area we service. We also coordinate with these nonprofits to provide multi-faceted support for our community. In essence, we forge partnerships with those who are already addressing people’s needs. This collaboration helps prevent duplication of services and increases county-specific access to crucial resources. Rather than viewing other nonprofits as competition, we see them as an integral part of our community. Together, we accomplish so much more, and we eagerly support those who seek to make a different in West Tennessee.


  • As an extension of the 2-1-1 Hotline, the 211 Hub is an online database for agencies and individuals to find and share resources. By streamlining information through one channel, it furthers collaboration among agencies and enables them to communicate with and serve the people of West Tennessee more effectively.

  • Christmas Partners

    Christmas PartnersChristmas Partners is an alliance of community organizations that collaborate to provide Christmas assistance to families of Jackson/Madison County who need help. By receiving applications and preventing the duplication of services among our partner organizations, we maximize the number of families in need receiving assistance each year.

  • #GivingTuesday731 is a collaboration of nonprofits across West Tennessee and serves to rally the community together to support these local organizations. This annual event occurs every GivingTuesday and gives nonprofits the opportunity to work together, while providing donors a chance to support local causes.

  • At the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way organized bi-weekly Zoom calls with nonprofit leaders across the region. These virtual meetings provided them with important updates on the latest developments, while also increasing service coordination to those with the greatest need. Since then, United Way established the West Tennessee Nonprofit Network to maintain that momentum and communication.
