Real Needs, Real Impact

Have you ever wondered what a difference a donation makes?

We’ve set our goal for 2016, 

to raise $2,030,000  

and you can help us. 

Our Progress


“To meet the challenge of this journey, it takes more than just businesses and employee campaigns,  It takes leadership givers, it takes professionals, teachers, lawyers, doctors, and all those who devote their lives to the service of others. And it takes hundreds of volunteers to make a campaign of this size truly successful.”

-Peter Hansel

Together we can make the Monadnock Region a better place.

Our Local Footprint, Where Your Donations Go

The Monadnock United Way funds programs that serve a wide variety of community needs. In 2015, significant funding was allocated toward services that stabilize citizens, empower well-being and help kids succeed. When you give through the Monadnock United Way, we can fund the programs that will help change the lives in our local community.

With your local donations, we can give our children the foundation for success. We can help give meals, transportation, or housing to those in need. When our residents are thriving, the benefits ripple across the region. Monadnock United Way donor resources support a focus on community well-being through prevention, respite, and direct services.

Our campaign this year focuses on footprints, many footprints—footprints from people like you, from all walks of life, heading in the same direction to have an impact and to create the chance for people to change their lives.
