How does the United Way help?

Rice County Area United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of everyone in our community.

Your donation joins with others to do good across the community, going where the needs are greatest and supporting our nonprofit agency partners as they implement evidence-based solutions to our community’s most pressing problems.

Who benefits?
