About Monadnock United Way
Founded in 1952, Monadnock United Way is an autonomous and independent organization governed by a Board of community members. Our accountability is to our local volunteers and donors. Decisions on which programs to fund and all other operating and policy decisions are made here in the Monadnock Region.
Although Monadnock United Way is best known for conducting an annual campaign which provides funding for needed services to people in the region, community building represents an equally major effort. Monadnock United Way collaborates with a variety of partners to help identify and address emerging issues and specific human service needs. These partners include social service providers, foundations, local government, education and the medical community.
Monadnock United Way has an endowment, which has been managed by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation since 1987. These funds are restricted and invested to provide a permanent source of income for Monadnock United Way's administrative budget. Contributions to the endowment provide permanent income to help underwrite MUW costs. For information on how to contribute to the MUW endowment fund, including making Monadnock United Way part of an estate plan, please contact the MUW office.
