citi & United Way of east tn highlands giving campaign
United Way of East TN Highlands is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that raises and allocates funds for nearly 30 programs working to improve the health, education and financial stability of our local families. We bring people and organizations together to do more together than any of us can do on our own. Together, we tackle some of the community’s toughest issues. We’re after solutions that create real change. It’s not simple, or easy. But we’re making progress and seeing results.
United Way & Citi T-Shirt
Those who sign up for monthly giving at $20 per month or more will receive this year’s t-shirt!
Be sure to add your t-shirt size as you enter your gift to ensure that the correct amount of shirts in each size are ordered.
Common Levels of Giving
A common question we hear is, “How much should I give?” The expandable sections below will help give you an idea of the most common levels that we see.
Fair Share Givers
You may have heard of the ‘Fair Share’ before. If you haven’t it’s simply giving 1-hour of pay per month, or 1% of your total salary (divided by 12 for monthly giving). The Fair Share level of giving was created to emphasize that it is not the size of your gift compared to others that matters, but that we each give proportionally to what we can.
Hourly example – If you make $18/hr, your fair share would be a monthly gift of $18.
Salary example – If you make $60,000 in salary, your fair share would be a monthly gift of $50 ($60,000 x 0.01 = $600, $600 / 12 = $50)
Leadership Givers understand the importance of giving back to the community they live in. These donors demonstrate their commitment to addressing crucial health, education and financial stability needs through their contributions ($42/month or $500/year). Through their generous giving, they are leading the community in creating sustainable change and enriching the lives of those who call it home.
Those who give at the Leadership Giving Level will receive the free t-shirt and a special edition 11″ x 17″ print from a local artist as a token of appreciation.
