In the early 1900s, charitable organizations from across the nation came together to form The American Association for Community Organizations. They developed a program to allocate funds and establish Community Chests to help local communities supply their residents with academic support, access to health care, and much more. This group eventually changed their name to The United Way, and continues to this day to hold annual campaigns to raise funds to assist and build strong communities.
