United Way of Fairfield County Initiatives

The United Way of Fairfield County has a unique ability to work across sectors, issues, and communities to address challenges, generate solutions, and drive progress toward meeting community needs.

Working to advance the common good by focusing on education, financial stability and health. The community is encouraged to give, advocate and volunteer.

We organize and manage fundraising that raises more than $1.5 million annually for our community.  We support and encourage volunteerism and utilize volunteers to maximize our efforts with our Free Tax Prep Program, Dolly's Imagination Library and Career Closet.

 Together, we provide hope for people in need. With your support, we bring people, resources and passion together to change lives.
