United Way of Johnson County receives 94 percent of our funding through donor pledges and contributions. Six percent is raised through special events, other revenues, and grants. Our annual campaign includes:
- Raising nearly $1.5 million in 2015 by a group of dedicated local volunteers, a board of directors and employees.
- Spending 83 cents of every $1 raised on local services.
- Allocating 17 cents of every $1 contributed for fundraising and administration of services and programs.
- Meeting with hundreds of people throughout the community to share the stories about the 18 local agencies and eight programs funded by UWJC.
United Way of Johnson County can receive additional funding this year through UnitedIN2016 offered by the Indiana Association of United Ways, funded by Lilly Endowment. Over the next four years, the grant dollars will be used to help our families who have no place to call home. Specifically, the dollars will be used for financial assistance for those clients who agree to case management services. Financial assistance may include:
