Our Mission

Unite resources to understand and address priority community issues.

Our Vision

Communities where all individuals and families have the opportunity to achieve their full potential.

Our History

Founded in 1922, the United Way of Southwestern Indiana first began as a local Community Chest organization. It funded 17 agencies in southwestern Indiana. In 1937, the United Way began to do more than raise and allocate funds and began focusing on addressing needs in the community. The Forerunner to First Call for Help, now our 2-1-1 information and help line, was established in 1938. In 1958, the organization became a United Fund.

I am honored to serve as United Way’s President and CEO.  I love what we do do and, as I have spent more time meeting the people we serve, the volunteers who give their time, and our donors who generously offer their hard-earned dollars, I am constantly reminded of the passion to serve others. United Way of Southwestern Indiana plays a vital role in the lives of so many in the three-county region of Vanderburgh, Warrick and Spencer Counties.  It is a privilege to serve in this compassionate community that strives to further United Way’s mission by supporting our neighbors’ pathways to potential. Only with your continued support do we make great things happen!

If you are interested in furthering our work by starting a giving campaign for your company, volunteering your time or talent, or learning more about our community’s critical issues, please feel free to contact me at 812-422-4100 or acanterbury@unitedwayswi.org.

Thank you for choosing to LIVE UNITED!
