United Way is a nonprofit, 501(c)(3) agency that brings people and communities together to advance the common good. We partner with local nonprofits, businesses, government and social service agencies to address our community's most pressing needs.Our work helps provide the building blocks for a good life through efforts in three areas in Defiance County: Education
Health, and Financial Stability.
We fund local programs that address poverty’s root causes on multiple fronts, and we measure our impact and success each year in our Annual Impact Report. We also fund Essential Services in the community that are a safety net and bridge gaps in services already available in Defiance County. Some of these Essential Services include disaster relief as well as emergency medication.
