Write Start Project

PRESENTED BY CITI

Together, Our Impact is Strongest

Uniting the community to identify and solve our most critical issues depends on your generous support.

Supporting Teachers and Their Students

The United Way Write Start Project is a back-to-school initiative targeting those who make a difference in the lives of our children, the individuals who spend their days ensuring that our students succeed in school: teachers.

Join us to help support over 100 schools and over 5,300 teachers in our community!
