The United Way of Southwestern Indiana values Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and we also consider the importance of Belonging for marginalized people as we intend to LIVE UNITED.
We believe that every person has value and brings substantial value to our community. Their lived experiences, race, ethnicity, citizenship, nationality, socio-economic status, gender identity, gender roles, sexual orientation, age, religion, and/or diverse abilities enrich our collective community.
While acknowledging that historical barriers still exist, we intend to foster this commitment through collaboration, discussions, and ongoing training that encourages the United Way of Southwestern Indiana and its partners to be leaders in building avenues to genuinely honor the diversity that we each bring.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you for choosing to LIVE UNITED!
