At its core, United Way is a community impact organization supported by a wide network of people just like you. Together with local partners, we set and reach community-wide goals that make Central Indiana — and the world — a better place.
We don’t wait for problems to land in our laps. Instead, we dig for the challenges that need us most — improving the education, financial stability, health and basic needs of individuals across our six-county region.See Our Impact
We’ve aligned our efforts, public policy work and partnerships — from small businesses and human services agencies to schools and governmental institutions — around measurable community goals that do the most good.Meet Our Partners

households received utility assistance through the Energy Assistance Program and Winter Assistance Fund
