All Funds Raised in Hastings Stay in Hastings
If you participate in a workplace campaign you have the option to designate your contribution to the United Way of Hastings. To be certain your contributions stay in Hastings, you must designate United Way of Hastings. When you designate you funds to the United Way of Hastings, your dollars are funneled into local organizations. Without this designation your dollars can be sent to the national organization level.
