United Way Is About Partnering
Rice County Area United Way is community-wide and community-strong. Workplace partners, individual donors and volunteers, and nonprofit agencies work together to achieve a powerful impact on the education, health and financial stability of people in the Rice County area. That's Living United!
Our partner agencies are nonprofit organizations that help families and individuals in crisis situations that may result in food insecurity, lack of safe housing, job loss and disability. They also help us raise all of our children to succeed in school and life with hope and strong ethics.
It’s not just about temporary solutions. Our partner agencies deliver evidence-based programs with measurable outcomes.
Workplace partners large and small conduct United Way giving campaigns where employees can contribute to Rice County Area United Way through easy payroll deductions. The employers in many cases also make a corporate contribution and sometimes provide a match for employee donations.
Workplace support has a tremendous impact on the education, health and financial stability of people in the Rice County area.
If you would like to start a United Way campaign at your workplace, please let us know. Contact Penny at firstname.lastname@example.org or (507) 664-3510.
Individual supporters -- like YOU! -- are the essential third leg of the United Way partnership tripod. They are committed to doing their part to ensure a caring community where everyone has the chance to develop their abilities and build a stable life.
Through an annual gift, a monthly or quarterly contribution, or volunteering with us or with one of our partner agencies, individual partners provide critical support to all we do.
