Explore Ways To Give

When it comes to investing in your community, there are a number of ways to give to United Way of Eastern Maine.

Gifts given to United Way are distributed to over 50 programs and initiatives to nonprofit agencies all our five county region. All agency allocations are made through a competitive grant process administered by over 80 community volunteers.  All gifts are tax deductible.

Payroll Deduction

The easiest way to give. If your company runs a United Way campaign just fill out a pledge card and the amount you select per pay period will be deducted directly from your paycheck. Small increments over time make big change! If you’re interested in running a campaign learn more.

Check

You can mail us a check with your pledge card to 700 Main Street, Suite 1, Bangor, ME 04401.

Credit or Debit Card

You can make either a one time or recurring credit or debit card payment. Recurring gifts through our website are evergreen, meaning once you make the pledge it continues until you change or cancel it. Donate today! 

Gifts of Stock

A great way to give to United Way is a gift of stock. If you donate stock that has increased in value since you bought it more than a year ago—and if you itemize deductions—you can take a charitable deduction for the stock’s fair market value on the day you donate it. If a gift of stock makes sense for you, please contact us at (207) 941-2800.
