"Why do I contribute to the United Way?  How could I not? My contribution, joined with thousands of others, makes it  possible to open the doors to 95 different United Way programs which address the needs of the poor and working poor of  Muskegon. The United Way agencies offer services and a beacon of hope to families in crisis.  I am privileged to join in their yearly campaign.  This past year I have  added  a provision in my will to continue  my contributions  in order to be assured that future generations will  have a place to turn when  they encounter tough times."
-Joan Majeski

We have an increasing number of friends at the United Way who now are benefiting from life income gifts, gift annuities and other plans. Thank you for taking the time to explore the benefits of gift planning.
