The United Fund of Giles County began operations in 1957 as a 501(C)3 tax exempt organization, with a mission to secure funding and distribute those funds to participating agencies as approved by the Board. The organization is led by volunteers with the exception of the Executive Director. The United Fund of Giles County is not affiliated with the United Way.
Each fall a campaign is initiated to solicit funds to meet the budget as approved by a sub-committee of the Board of Directors in the prior month of May. The Budget and Admissions committee meets with the "Partner Agencies" to develop the annual campaign goal. After the recommendations are finalized, they are acted upon by the entire Board of Directors in June. Plans are then developed for a new fall "Kick-Off" campaign in September. The United Fund's operating fiscal year is the same as the calendar year.
The United Fund of Giles County is dependent upon citizens, corporate, government and other sources to contribute resources. The United Fund allocates those funds to the "Partners".
