United Way of Guernsey, Monroe and Noble Counties, Inc.

The mission of the United Way of Guernsey, Monroe and Noble Counties, Inc. is to improve the community by enhancing the lives of our residents in the areas of education, health and financial stability. We cultivate and distribute resources to qualified partners that align with our impact areas, and we develop programs where needs persist.

We use locally raised money to help those people who live in Guernsey, Noble and Monroe Counties

United Way partners with you in creating a giving program which develops solutions for the whole community

By giving to the United Way, you join others whose gifts are addressing critical community issues: nurturing children and youth, strengthening families, supporting older people, promoting health and wellness and increasing self-sufficiency. Your one gift will help all kinds of people – all at the same time.
You also have the choice to designate all or part of your gift to your favorite charity or an agency that has helped you, a family member, friend or neighbor

In addition to supporting large, well-known agencies, your United Way gift helps small lesser known agencies who often do not have the time nor the manpower to fundraise. We also have two of our own initiatives:
Women’s Initiative focusing on early childhood literacy bringing the Dolly Parton Imagination Library program to our communities. Children enrolled in the program, receive a new, age appropriate book, monthly, birth through their 5th birthday

Young Professionals group provides an opportunity for young professionals to network with one another while working with teens to develop soft skills, learn about career fields in our communities from the young professionals through job shadowing and develop a sense of community though community service projects

United Way keeps fundraising costs low, so nearly all of your contributions help people with the greatest needs

A network of several hundred volunteers helps to conduct the annual campaign. Therefore, your money helps those in need
