Give your resources.

Change doesn’t happen alone. Hope is not a one-man-band. Donating dollars to any one organization cannot solve all of the social dilemmas that face our community. Giving to United Way can. We ask for the partnership of every person across the community in resourcing life-changing solutions for individuals and families that live in Allen County. To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.

We need passionate champions from all walks of life to take part in transforming our Allen County community. Will you join the fight? Consider partnering with us through a financial gift today.
