Creating a better community for ALL.

At United Way of Northwest Michigan, we’re striving to create a better community for all. Our focus is creating lasting change in our region. We start with individuals just like you and add the magic of volunteer support, corporate matching gifts, and grant dollars. When combined, these resources can create real change in our region. We are focused on seeing our students graduate on time, prepared for post-secondary success, reducing substance use and childhood obesity rates, and making sure all of our neighbors have a warm home and food on the table. Your gift stays right here, making a difference in our community.  That’s the United Way.

We’re Rolling Our Sleeves Up
