Community Impact on Education

Education is the cornerstone of individual and community success. With more than 1.2 million children dropping out each year, America faces an education crisis. The cost? More than $312 billion in lost wages, taxes and productivity over their lifetimes. These trends are reversible, but only when communities and public, private and nonprofit sectors work together.

The United Way of DeKalb County supports local programs that provide educational opportunities on a cradle-to-career continuum.

Your contribution has allowed us to provide funding to these United Way Partner Agency that impact the education of DeKalb County residents.
