United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability
of every person in every community.
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 22 programs at 18 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:
Where all children receive a quality education that offers a pathway to a brighter tomorrow
Where the cycle of poverty and financial dependence ends and more productive lives begin
Where everyone receives effective health care that improves their quality of life.
