Philanthropic Societies

Within United Way, groups of like-minded people are inspiring their peers to make a difference. Together, we are more than the sum of our parts. Together, we can change the world.

When people engage with United Way of Bartholomew County, they bring their passion, skills and vision to our efforts, focusing their sights on the greater good. Together, we can accomplish far more.

All of us bring our unique perspective, experience and enthusiasm to the cause, and that diversity is the wellspring of innovative solutions we need to affect positive change on a large scale.

We invite everyone to improve the lives of our neighbors by finding the society that fits YOU!
