Your gift makes a difference in our community

The money you give to United Way makes a clear and visible impact on the people of Monroe County.

Because of you, our children enter school ready to learn, graduate with a clear plan, and continue building job and life skills as they enter adulthood.

Because of you, our families gain and maintain stable employment, increase and retain their income, and start building savings and assets.

Because of you, those who need help the most get access to sufficient food, a stable place to live, and basic health care.

Because of you, our community is a better place for everyone.
