How We Help

The United Way of Franklin County creates lasting change by working with its community partners throughout Franklin County. Strong communities are cohesive places where people are healthy, able to receive a good eduction, and secure jobs that provide for them and their families.  In order to do this, we must address our social and economic challenges head-on. Our partners are doing this important work and we are proud to help them achieve their goals by funding community programs.
Our 3-year funding and partnership cycle is a unique process, involving community members who participate in the Community Investment process.  To learn more about our strategies and goals please go to Community Investment.


By utilizing area resources and donor funding, we are committed to making a lasting impact by supporting our partners in three service areas: Health, Education, and Financial Stability.
