Open Letter from our Board of Directors Chair

“If I have the belief that I can do it, I shall surely acquire the capacity to do it even if I may not have it at the beginning.”
Mahatma Ghandi

I am inspired to serve the community through United Way. Our board of directors recently made momentous and courageous decisions— decisions that will help shape social change in our community for generations. Our current system of social justice requires new ways to solve persistent problems. Our new model of funding only promising or proven collaborations has been clearly communicated over a long period of time and is backed up by powerful data. Collective impact is hard, but it works. We know all that, but choosing this path is uncomfortable… we are not yet expert at this model. But because of our commitment to the Strategic Plan we adopted, we’ll stick to this path and, as Ghandi says, we’ll “acquire the capacity to do it….”

The time is right for our approach as we activate our networks around transformative change. United Way is the answer: the partner every employer needs to build relevance into relationships. It’s time to unlock the transformational power of the relationships we have by using them as channels to connect human, social, intellectual and, yes, financial capital with the causes that matter most. I "have the belief that we can do this”. With community leaders, academic experts, forward-thinking employers, committed public servants and so many others, we will succeed. And, as a result and over time, tens of thousands of families in our community will move from desperation to prosperity.

Executing bold vision is hard. Maintaining the status quo is easy. This week, we chose hard. We chose to change the course of history.

Thank you.

Kevin Trapani
Board of Directors Chair
United Way of the Greater Triangle

Collaborating

We are working with nonprofit and community partners as a network, helping to orchestrate coordinated action plans toward shared goals.

Investing in solutions and innovative approaches

We continue to focus on outcomes to address issues facing our community by supporting and investing in proven solutions as well as promising new approaches developed through collaboration and innovation.

Focusing our approach

We will meet today’s basic needs (food, housing, safety, and access to healthcare) and work to build sustainable solutions that will mean brighter futures for low-income families, children, and our community.

Our focus on basic needs and funding long-term solutions to specific issues to help families and children together represents the new direction of our United Way.

We cannot create change alone. We are committed to mobilizing the caring power of our community and dedicated to fueling the innovative spirit of the Triangle that has helped this region grow. We believe that together we can tackle the big issues facing our communities and create a legacy of achievement for generations to come.
