United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties improves lives and strengthens communities. We build collaborations with individuals, businesses, and nonprofits to address challenges that no one agency can solve alone to provide the building blocks of opportunity—education, income and health—that every person needs to thrive. Together, we’re solving our region’s biggest problems and creating lasting change. Read More

  • About Us
    United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties works to improve lives in these four focus areas:

    Education: To increase our region's high school graduation rate, we make strategic grants to support child and youth success. This includes early learning, support for disabilities, before- and after-school learning, STEM education, mentoring, and more. We've launched a pilot project in 3 middle schools to help students who are chronically absent.

    Health: Our goal is that all people will have access to affordable care they need to be safe and healthy.

    Financial Stability: Our goal is that all people will have access to the support they need to eat, have a safe place to sleep, and be financially stable.

    Basic Needs: We invest in high performing, local non-profits who provide a safety net to members of our community. We tackle big issues like homelessness, hunger, and recovery from disaster (fire, flood, etc.).
  • Our Impact
    Together, we have fed, housed, educated, and provided key support for over 58,000 people in 2020.

    We recognize that we will never have enough money in our community to meet all of our community's needs. So, our next goal is to co-create strategies to combat the impact of the pandemic on children and their families to address root causes that interfere with a healthy, productive future for our future customers and future employees--the future of our communities.
