Our Mission

If you live in Delaware County, we work for you. Since 1925, United Way of Delaware County has given people in Delaware County, Indiana ways to improve lives in our community.

Today, the best way to make the biggest possible impact is to first focus on areas that change people's lives forever: preparing kids to enter school ready, and to graduate and succeed, helping families leave poverty permanently by becoming financially stable and independent, and enabling people to live healthy, responsible lives.

United Way amplifies every contribution you make to help the community address these big issues. Volunteers just like you give thousands of hours of their time to find the best ways to invest gifts to the community, so every dollar you give makes the biggest possible impact. United Way also directs the passion and expertise thousands of volunteers  toward work that helps people change their lives forever. And we give everyone tools to become more informed advocates for addressing the pressing issues in Delaware County.



Community leaders and people like you developed the COMMUNITY GOALS  for our community for the next 10 years. Because achieving these goals depends on a coordinated effort by the whole community, United Way of Delaware County will do everything we can to help our community work together to reach them:
