We envision a strong community where everyone achieves their potential through quality education, financial stability and healthy lifestyles.


Arts United

Arts United is an Alma College event to raise money for United Way. During the show, you will be able to bid on a variety of artwork in the silent auction, as well as enjoy a variety of music, song, dance, painting and theatrical performances from both the local and Alma College communities. Join us Monday, March 18th, 2019 at the Heritage Center.


2018-19 Community Campaign Incentive

The United Way Board of Trustees has a set bold goal to raise $1,000,000 during the 2018-19 Community Campaign to Break the Cycle of Generational Poverty through educational programs that give children the skills to succeed and help adults achieve long-term financial stability so they can support themselves and their families. Donate $150 or more to the United Way 2018-19 Community Campaign and you will be automatically entered for a chance to win a John Deere Gator 590M. Make a donation of $100 or more for a chance to win a John Deere Lawn Tractor E130/E140 — both prizes courtesy of Bader & Sons Co!


Pop-Up Giving (PUG)

Join us at the Elks Lodge in Alma on Monday, February 4th for United Way's Pop-Up Giving (PUG) event! What's Pop-Up Giving? It's a collaborative giving event where YOU choose the winner. Your entry donation of $20 will be pooled to create a pot, United Way will then match that up to $5,000. Hear pitches from three local nonprofit organizations (to be announced) trying to win your vote.



PITCH-ER THIS! is a youth development competition for students in Gratiot and Isabella Counties. United Way will provide funding to the winning team(s) to help bring their idea to life. Event attendees and a panel of community leaders will vote for their favorite project. Ideas range from programs and events to technology and arts that will help people achieve their full potential through quality education, financial stability and healthy lifestyles.
