United Way Celebrating #givingtuesday By Raising Funds & Awareness

Nov 21, 2021

FORT WAYNE (November 24, 2021) – United Way of Allen County will be kicking off its GivingTuesday efforts once again, on Tuesday, November 30th. GivingTuesday is a global movement that reimagines a world built upon shared humanity and radical generosity. This year, United Way of Allen County’s goal is to further Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion efforts in Allen County by supporting our Equity and Diversity Fund. It is our desire to actively address inequities related to infrastructure, funding networks, data, and metrics by investing in solutions that increase opportunities for underrepresented people groups. We will create a better future by equitably leveraging the support needed for each person to succeed in all aspects of life. United Way of Allen County is not only a fundraiser – we dynamically address problems, take on community challenges, and never shy away from the needs of all individuals in our community.

To date, through United Way of Allen County’s Equity and Diversity Fund, Amani Family Services, Bigger Than Us Inc., Building A Stronger Family Inc., Fort Wayne Urban League, The Financial Semester Inc., and The League have been awarded a total of $50,000 in grants.
