The United Fund of Cumberland, Inc. is an independent, non-profit organization that collects funds from area residents and businesses, then redistributes these resources to local programs and agencies. Our goal is a stronger, healthier Cumberland community.
The United Fund of Cumberland is a 501 (c)(3). And our Board of Directors is made up entirely of volunteers.
The United Fund of Cumberland is unique to our community. We are not affiliated with the United Way. The concepts are similar though, donations made are put in a general fund and then distributed to causes and organizations. The money you donate stays in our community supporting causes from all tiers of society. Many organizations have received funding from the United Fund of Cumberland in the past. We have funded youth programming, sports, arts, health and wellness, and educational groups, just to name a few.
