This is the final installment on the Thinking of End of the Year Giving series.  I hope you've come in from the cold (actually it's beautiful outside), finished up holiday shopping (there are still 24 days left ), and are considering how your monetary gifts can help those in need.

We encourage you to keep these tips in mind if you are supporting charities this season.

7. Explore matching programs from your employer
Many companies offer matching gift programs that increase the impact of your gift to charity.

8. Use AmazonSmile
When you use AmazonSmile for your purchases, Amazon donates 0.5% of the price to your eligible purchases to the charitable organization of your choice.  AmazonSmile is the same Amazon you know with the same products, same prices and same service.  United Way is a participating organization so feel free to click here to begin shopping.

9. And finally - Let United Way do the work!
Giving to United Way of Rock River Valley ensures that 100% of your money stays in the community and makes a difference in all of our lives.  Giving to United Way helps children learn how to read, helps adults gain job skills and employment and keeps our neighborhoods safe and healthy.  And United Way of Rock River Valley receives a 4-star rating from Charity Navigator so you know your investment is a sound one.

As a lifelong resident of the Rockford area, I want to extend my thanks to all my fellow citizens who support our local nonprofit agencies.  Yes, our community has a lot of needs, but we also have a lot of big-hearted people who believe in taking care of their neighbors.  Thank you for your support of United Way and for your support of the Rock River Valley.

Consider making an end of year gift to support United Way in the fight for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in our community.
