 The United Givers Fund acts as an umbrella organization, raising money to give to these agencies.  The luncheon gave members and partners a chance to discuss the goals and budget for this fall's campaign.

"We've been able to raise more money than those agencies would be able to do on their own.  So it results in more funds, to spread across more agencies to provide more help, and to do more good," says Jeremy Taylor, president of the United Givers Fund of Dekalb County.

All of the money raised through UGF stays in Dekalb County to help the community.
