Kishwaukee United Way works hard to fill in the gaps between existing services and to fortify the local resources that also exist within our community. United Ways across the world focus particularly on Education, Income, and Health as pillars to a healthy life.  Partner agencies are official partners of Kishwaukee United Way that have gone through a rigorous application process and then annually apply for funds. When we allocate dollars, you can be sure your donation is going to organizations making big impacts while staying financially sound.
