The United Way of Knox County is an independent, locally controlled, non-profit organization governed by a volunteer board of directors elected from Knox County, Illinois, that provides support to 21 programs at 14 human service agencies in Knox County. Knox County United Fund was incorporated in June of 1954. Then in November 1972, we began operating as United Way of Knox County, Inc.
United Way of Knox County envisions a community where all individuals and families achieve their potential through education, income stability and healthy lives:
To strengthen Knox County Communities by fostering volunteer action, building resources and caring for individuals.
United Way of Knox County values and seeks diversity by respecting the abilities and experiences of all individuals. Our commitment is to support an inclusive environment reflecting and accomplishing
our United Way mission.
It's a credo. A mission. A goal. A constant reminder that when we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all. We build the strength of our neighborhoods. We bolster the health of our communities. And we change the lives of those who walk by us every day.
