The problems within Education, Income, and Health in our community cannot be solved by one agency alone. Rappahannock United Way invests Community Impact Funds in programs provided through its member agencies listed below. These programs are making an impact in the areas of Education, Income, and Health in our community today. In working side by side with these agencies, we are creating lasting changes in the Greater Fredericksburg community.
