United Way of Johnson County Kicks off Campaign 
On August 21, United Way of Johnson County kicked off its annual fundraising campaign.  We have set a goal of $1,455,000.

help us meet our goal by:

  • By making a personal contribution.  Go to the Click, Give, and Live United below.
  • Encourage your employer to run an employee campaign. Contact for more information.

you can help us bring an additional $137,700 back to our community

We can receive an additional $137,700 this year through the Work2Gether Grant offered by the Indiana Association of United Ways, funded by Lilly Endowment. The grant dollars will provide for the following:

  • Fast Track Program:  To ensure the sustainability of this valuable program, a year’s worth of school supplies will be purchased in advance to put in storage.  
  • Homelessness:  In order to create a realistic solution to the homeless issues in Johnson County, UWJC will conduct a homeless needs assessment.   Building on the recommendations of the assessment, UWJC will collaboratively develop and implement a plan to address the needs of our Johnson County homeless families who have no place to call home. 

In order for gifts to qualify for matching funds, one or more of the following must apply:

  • Johnson Leadership Circle: Any new leadership member gift will be matched dollar for dollar. Increased contributions would be matched for Leadership Circle members who move up a level or increase their contribution by 10 percent.
  • Employee Campaigns: New campaigns will be matched dollar for dollar. Existing employee campaigns that increase by at least 10 percent will qualify for a match for every new dollar.
  • Corporate Giving: New corporate gifts are matched dollar for dollar. Corporate gifts that increase at least 10 percent will have their new dollars matched. (Minimum $100 contribution required.) Companies switching from a set gift to an employee matching gift will have their new dollars matched.
