A letter to our stakeholders


We’re thrilled to address you as a newly expanded organization: United Way of Elkhart & LaGrange Counties.

United Way’s mission is to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every member of every community.  Our organization is in a stronger position to fulfill that mission than ever before.

We recognize that the issues facing our communities, the commerce of our businesses, and the lives of our donors, volunteers, and those that we serve do not start or stop at county borders.  Our new alliance will allow us to build a stronger and more collaborative network, better address regional health and human service needs, and mobilize greater human and financial resources across both communities.

The important work of aligning our goals, restructuring our Board of Directors with strong representation from both counties, and expanding our initiatives has begun.  As we look ahead, we envision a stronger United Way better able to serve working families in both communities, and we see more potential for partnerships on the horizon.

This is truly an exciting time of growth and opportunity for our organization, and our loyal donors, advocates, and volunteers made it possible.  We are deeply grateful for your continued support and partnership.

Thank you!
