Why I Stopped Giving to United Way.


Washington University and United Way join forces on gun violence prevention

gun-violence-public-health-x150The collaborative is reflective of the mission of an initiative Washington University launched last spring to bring together scholars, medical professionals, community leaders and citizens to take a hard look at the serious, tragic public health consequences of gun violence in America. Led by the Institute for Public Health, “Gun Violence: A Public Health Crisis” is a yearlong effort that explores three key themes: What we know, what we need to know, and what to do about this critical issue.


We used to have a program where you could automatically deduct amounts from employee’s pay direct to United Way.

It was a way to get their “Blessing” or stamp of approval… .   I stopped donating to them along time ago.
