Giving back to the community we live in: The Indiana University United Way Campaign

Indiana University is proud to be part of Bloomington and the greater Monroe county community. We would not be the institution we are without the support of the people and organizations around us.

We believe it’s important to give back—to do our part to make sure the citizens of our community are happy, healthy, and thriving.

Supporting United Way of Monroe County is one way we do that. When you join our campaign by pledging to give through payroll deduction or by making an outright gift, you help the United Way address today’s critical needs and work to reduce those needs tomorrow.

98% of your gift remains in the community

Help make the United Way vision reality

When you give, you bring us one step closer to ensuring that everyone in Monroe County has what they need to thrive.

The United Way of Monroe County believes that:

  • Everyone should have sufficient food
  • Everyone should have a safe place to live
  • Everyone should have access to basic health care
  • People in crisis should have access to emergency services
  • Children and youth should have the opportunity to grow and prosper
  • Everyone should have the skills and support to enter and stay in the workforce
  • Seniors should be supported in their efforts to be independent

Why choose United Way for your annual giving?

Giving to United Way is a great way to make sure your hard-earned dollars are going to help where they’re most needed—and will make the biggest difference.

That’s because the Monroe county Community Investment Committee carefully evaluates all the applications it receives from member agencies and uses the most recent community needs assessment to decide where funds can have the greatest impact.
