Giving to the United Way of Southwestern Indiana

We never know where life will lead us from day to day. Sometimes, it’s the unexpected loss of a job. Sometimes, it’s an unplanned medical bill. Sometimes, it’s both – and the combination is too much. Where do people turn when they have nowhere else to go?

They turn to us. A team of United Way funded programs can help them get back on their feet and on the path toward upward mobility. When you give to the United Way, you can trust that your dollar is invested wisely into the programs and initiatives that demonstrate impact. 

Your gift to United Way ensures:

  • Individuals are empowered to break the cycle of poverty and hard-working families are supported with resources that allow them to thrive
  • The most critical issue in our community is getting the most attention
  • Those in need are surrounded by a network of services to help along their journey
  • Efforts are focused into outcomes that are shown to have a long-term positive impact on upward mobility


Solving the complex, difficult problem of poverty and the lack of resources for the working poor takes all of us working together – LIVING UNITED. Join us in building pathways so that each person can reach their full potential.

LEADERSHIP GIVING

Alexis de Tocqueville Society

The Alexis de Tocqueville Society is made up of local philanthropic leaders who generously commit to gifts of $10,000 or more annually. Its members have proven to be highly effective and highly esteemed United Way partners who play a critical role in our important work. Tocqueville donors provide critical support for United Way campaigns, leading the way in gift giving and influencing others to give as well.

Members of the Tocqueville Society enjoy the benefit of connecting with a network of business and civic leaders who have chosen to collaborate with United Way to create long-lasting community change. Members also invited to exclusive local and national networking events and receive regional recognition.

For more information on the  Alexis de Tocqueville Society, contact Amy Canterbury, at 812-422-4100.

Keel Club

The Keel Club is United Way of Southwestern Indiana’s Leadership Giving Society. Just as the keel represents the essential backbone and structural strength of a ship, Keel Club members provide a strong foundation for United Way of Southwestern Indiana.  Annual gifts of $1,000 and above are considered Keel gifts and are invested back into the community to support programs that focus on building blocks of upward mobility – childhood success, youth success and mental health. 

For more information about the Keel Club, contact Amy Canterbury, at 812-422-4100.

Planned Giving

Making a planned gift offers the opportunity now and beyond your lifetime.  With planned giving, you can achieve personal and financial goals while leaving a legacy that will benefit all of Southwestern Indiana for generations to come.  A planned gift is a gift of capital which is not usually made from your current income.  Planned gifts can be given immediately (such as a gift of stock or real property), or deferred (such as a bequest or life insurance policy.)

We would be happy to discuss your planned giving options.  In addition, we strongly encourage you to contact your attorney or financial advisor to obtain information about how planned giving will affect your specific financial situation.  If you are considering a planned gift, please contact Amy Canterbury at 812-422-4100.
