Warren County United Way

Mission Statement

Through volunteer leadership, the Warren County United Way, Incorporated shall assess needs, raise funds and develop other resources to help improve the lives of the citizens of Warren County.
For over 30 years, the Warren County United Way has stayed true to its mission and continues to positively give back to our community.

A Unique Opportunity for Warren County United Way

Len G. Everett, a Kirkwood, Illinois native, left a bequest of 1.2 million dollars to the Warren County United Way in 1984. The bequest from Mr. Everett, by restriction, is held in a special trust administered by the Warren County United Way. Because income from this endowment pays all administrative and office costs, 100% of every dollar generated in the annual campaign drive is paid to our member agencies.
