The Caring Power of Community

Since 1952, Monadnock United Way has harnessed the caring power of community to improve lives throughout our entire Region.

We unite people from all sectors of the Monadnock Region to solve the toughest problems facing us today. We believe that when we work together, we make all our region’s communities stronger.

The problems challenging us are complex; they are issues that no single organization or individual can solve:


  • We have the third highest rate of child abuse and neglect in the state


  • Our children score lower than the rest of the state in English and math

Financial Stability

  • One quarter of our residents are low-income. The rest of NH the rate is 1 in 5

Uniting for Children, Education, and Financial Stability

Real change is possible when nonprofit, public and private sectors team up to work together. And alongside our community, Monadnock United Way is addressing these three issues in innovative ways. Here’s how you can help:
