ABOUT US

United Way of Greater Lafayette works to create positive changes in our community to make Tippecanoe County an even better place to call home. We want our local children to enter school ready to learn so they can graduate from high school, pursue a degree in college or obtain skilled job training, maintain stable, healthy lives at home, and become engaged, productive members of our community who help us continue creating success for others.

We cannot do this work alone, and our mission, Mobilizing our community to improve lives, reflects this. In other words, at United Way of Greater Lafayette, we bring people, organizations and resources together to deliver results that meet the needs of people in Tippecanoe County to create the conditions necessary for success.
