Now more than ever, our community needs your help

Our world has changed. And for so many in our community, their already difficult challenges have become worse.

When the health and economic crisis hit, United Way was at the forefront – part of a group of community partners who led the way in collaborating immediate response. But it is evident there is no quick fix. It will take time and all of us working together, LIVING UNITED, in order to build a better tomorrow and more resilient community. 

Because what we do together today, determines tomorrow.

With your help, we can provide brighter tomorrows for thousands of people in our community through dozens of essential programs United Way funds. For…

  • Our neighbors who have lost their only source of income
  • Young children who aren’t reaching developmental milestones
  • Students who lack the support to succeed in school
  • Families who need healthcare, but can’t afford it

Your gift will be carefully invested to ensure it makes the greatest impact through programs that are proven to make a lasting difference.

Now more than ever, we need to LIVE UNITED.

With our secure online giving portal, you can set up a reccurring gift or a one-time donation. You can also complete a Donor Pledge Form and/or mail a check to us at: 318 Main Street, Suite 504, Evansville, IN, 47708.
