United Way Campaign

Local Giving

Our annual fundraising efforts are an easy way to invest in your community.  United Way Montcalm-Ionia Counties is focused on 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.  With your help we can ignite a movement that is committed to creating opportunities for everyone.

Local Decisions

Your contributions stay local.  Local community members like you help decide where these funds are distributed.  As a donor, you are entitled to sit on a Community Investment Committee to distribute the funds raised during our annual campaign.  Consider volunteering for one of these committees this year.  Not only will you have a say, but you will also benefit from a deeper understanding of the need that your campaign contributions meet and how far we still have to go.

Local Campaign

The Workplace Campaign is the easiest and most powerful way to invest in your community.  Giving is simplified through payroll deductions that allow one gift to help many local organizations.  Whether a returning workplace campaign or a new one, you may find the following resources helpful.

United Way: Give today, change tomorrow!

In 2014-15, nearly all of our internal operating expenses were covered by corporate gifts and foundation grants.
As a result, 97% of each individual contribution made through United Way's Community Investment Fund was invested back into the local community through programs and services offered by local nonprofit organizations. That's 97 cents on every dollar donated!
The Community Investment Fund is the most powerful way to invest your contribution. Each year, a group of dedicated local volunteers reviews program grant requests from local nonprofit organizations to determine how to most effectively distribute your contribution to make a difference right here in our community.
