Serving Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties

The Impact of a Dollar

Whether you give a little or a lot, you make a difference!

When you donate to United Way, over 98% of your gift remains in Monroe, Owen, and Greene counties helping families, friends, neighbors, schoolmates, and co-workers.

At United Way of Monroe County, administrative costs are very low because so many volunteers help to raise and allocate funds.

Our member agencies and initiative partners face difficult times. Resources have decreased as needs have increased. Because of United Way, member agencies can spend less of their own money and energy on fundraising efforts. United Way also offers its members agencies resources, materials, technical support, and professional development opportunities.
