Support Neediest Cases through End of Year Giving 

Give to Neediest Cases throughout the month of December. And help support your neighbors in the new year. 

We’ve all needed a little help.

Everyone, at some point in their life, has needed a little help. And help comes in many different forms. The Neediest Cases Fund is one of them.

The Neediest Cases Fund provides one-time assistance for those who find themselves in a moment of crisis. These moments of crisis can look like a missed electricity bill payment, not being able to afford a week’s worth of groceries, or a flat tire. Will you support your neighbors in need and give to Neediest Cases today?

How does Neediest Cases work? 

A local orgnaization receives a need request from someone right here in the community. The organization fulfills the need, based off certain requirement.

The local organization reports to United Way of Greater Chattanooga and documents the person’s information, need, and resources allocated. United Way of Greater Chattanooga then reimburses the organization for services offered.

The recipient of the resources is able to carry on with their lives, one step closer to stability. Their lives are now forever changed, and the potential for where they can go is now better than it was before.

How can you make an impact?

If you give to Neediest Cases today, you will help make a direct impact and get someone back on their feet. A member of your community will have requested help from a local organization, feeling stressed and hopeless. But once they receive help, which is only possible because of your donation, they will walk out knowing their life is now better than it was.
