Heart of Indiana United Way identifies critical needs throughout our communities and invests in initiatives that make the most significant impact. 

When you give to Heart of Indiana United Way, your gifts touch not just one program, but many across our five county region of Delaware, Fayette, Henry Madison and Randolph Counties.
