United Way of Allen County exists to unite our communities' time, talent, and treasure to cultivate and advance community solutions that address the most critical issues around basic needs, education, financial stability, and healthy lives.
LIVE UNITED is not just a tagline. It's the way we think, and it guides what we do. We define LIVE UNITED, not as "we" the organization, but as "we" the Allen County community.

When we succeed, our entire community wins.
By bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions, we recognize the greater positive impact to Allen County residents every day. UNITED we win. United, we can find a way.
