Where it all started.

United Way of Indian River County has been serving the people of this community for 52 years.

 The United Fund was incorporated in Indian River County in 1961. Dan Richardson was the first president of the Board. That first ever campaign raised $41,000 in a county with a population of 26,000. Nine agencies benefited.
 

We have come far over 50 years. Cumulatively, United Way volunteers have raised more than $42,000,000. Nationally, United Way’s history traces back 125 years. Today, the United Way system has approximately 1,250 community based United Way member organizations. Each is incorporated and governed separately by its own set of local volunteers. During the 2017-2018 campaign, United Way raised almost $3 million for more than 30 agencies. Quite a change, right? No matter what year it is, what members serve on our board, or what our campaign goal is, we will always LIVE UNITED.

WITH YOUR HELP

We’ve funded 37 partner agencies and collaboratives and
44 programs focused on the building blocks for a good life.

JOIN US FOR A MONTH WITH A MISSION!

Every year, we look forward to hosting our annual Day of Caring. A day where over one thousand volunteers come together to work hard, laugh, and make a change in our community. It’s a perfect team-building opportunity for families, coworkers, teams, and clubs. It’s also a great way for individuals to deepen their understanding of local human service needs, find a cause they care about, roll up their sleeves, and get to work making a difference!
