United Way Of Central Alabama, Inc. Charity Profile

United Way of Central Alabama, Inc., formerly The Birmingham Community Chest, was organized in 1923 with 31 agencies and a goal of $450,000. Even in 1929, the year of the stock market crash, the goal was met and more than half a million dollars was raised - a remarkable amount, considering the economic conditions. In 1943, during World War II, the Birmingham Community Chest campaign raised more than $1 million for the first time. In 1956, it changed its name to the United Appeal. Two years later, the $2 million milestone was passed.

In 1969, the local organization was invited into neighboring Shelby County, and in 1970, agencies in Walker County were asked to be included as well. That year, more than $4 million was raised. In January 1985, the legal name was changed to the United Way-Community Chest of Central Alabama, Inc. In 1992, the name was changed to United Way of Central Alabama, Inc.

Throughout its history, United Way has not changed its basic purpose - to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another and to improve their community.
