What is the United Fund?
United Fund is a local, non-profit organization dedicated to supporting the needs of our community and it's families. We unite people and resources to improve lives and achieve measurable results in areas our community has said matter most.
United Fund brings community partners together to identify the underlying causes of our most critical local issues. We fund solutions to address them through area programs making positive changes in people's lives, giving them the tools to build a brighter future and a stronger community.

A Tradition of Caring...
