United Way partners with organizations and businesses that share our view that the way to improve lives is by mobilizing the caring power of communities. Their long-term commitments are essential to addressing key social issues, such as helping children and youth achieve through education, promoting financial stability and independence, and improving people’s health.

United Way of Northwest Illinois works extensively with large and small businesses in Carroll, Jo Daviess and Stephenson Counties. From this work we understand these businesses increasingly want to demonstrate outcomes through their community investment strategies and also leverage their work with others to maximize their social return.

We are thankful for the generous support of our local partners.
