About Us

Mission Statement

To improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities.

What We Do

Our purpose is to proactively move our region forward to meet community goals while providing for individuals’ basic needs by connecting community members with community resources.

How We’re Different

United Way of Mower County is not just a fundraiser. We work in close partnership with private businesses, government agencies, and nonprofit organizations to pinpoint and address community issues. United Way of Mower County does not fund agencies, we fund programs that directly impact individuals and families in our community.

In order to qualify for funding, programs must fit under one of our four impacts areas:

  1. Income
  2. Education
  3. Health
  4. Basic Needs

You must also be a 501c3 non-profit organization.
