Addison County Responds

Learn More

We are the Uniters. We bring people together to solve problems.

There are times when United Way of Addison County doesn’t need to identify the most pressing issues in our region, like the current pandemic that we are in the midst of. However, it is still our responsibility to bring together the people and the resources we think can solve them. Funding nearly 30 organizations in  Addison County gives UWAC a unique advantage to understanding these needs and to continue to work together towards solutions.

But for all that, sometimes the need is so current, to bring the people and the resources together requires more support than what we planned for. Which is why we present to you the opportunity to not just react but to respond by contributing to Addison County Responds.

**IMPORTANT UPDATE: since announcing Addison County Responds last week, a very special opportunity has been presented to us: four anonymous donors have banded together to match every dollar raised for Addison County Responds between March 23 and April 1 (no foolin'!) up to $50,000. Your donation will be doubled, which means the impact of your gift will also be doubled. There has never been a better, more important time to give to United Way of Addison County than now.**

"LIVE UNITED" Volunteer Scholarship

United Way of Addison County fosters community service in all community members, but especially in our youth. In that spirit, we will be honoring class of 2020 Addison County students at their awards nights. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize high school seniors who volunteer in their community who are interested in advancing their education.
