Our Vision

A future where Indiana’s United Ways thrive.

Our Credo

United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.

Our Core Values

» IUW develops people and organizations.
» IUW is a leader within the United Way Network.
» IUW does the work that matters.
» We treat each other with respect and dignity.
» IUW operates with integrity, accountability and transparency.

Equity Statement

United Way believes that Equity is the just inclusion of everyone in society. Equity is achieved when race/ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation and other identities no longer determine socioeconomic, education, and health outcomes. We recognize structural racism has contributed to the persistent disparities which UW seeks to dismantle. Our network strives to engage community residents to create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, supports, opportunities and networks they need to thrive.
