The building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. We hope to create lasting changes that help families become more stronger and more stable.

Be a part of the change. Together we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.

United Way of Whitley & Kosciusko County, founded in 1958, is governed by a local board of directors, comprised of community leaders. This agency is a not-for-profit 501(c)3 which accepts tax deductible contributions.



United Way fights for equity within our work; recognizing that everyone deserves more than life.  All people deserve hopes and dreams, access to quality schools, safe and affordable neighborhoods and jobs that become careers with economic mobility.

We have the power to end poverty, to dismantle racism and to create a just nation for all.  It simply requires the resolve to change and the willingness to sacrifice for others.  Resolve and sacrifice are American values.  They have solved our problems before.  They can again.
