About Us


United Way of Benton & Franklin Counties improves lives and strengthens communities. We build collaborations with individuals, businesses, and nonprofits to address challenges that no one agency can solve alone to provide the building blocks of opportunity—education, income and health—that every person needs to thrive. Together, we’re solving our region’s biggest problems and creating lasting change.
