Connecting People Who Care With Causes That Matter

Whether your resources are great or small… the United Community Fund can combine your gifts with those of many others, to benefit the causes that matter to all, through the Tipton County Foundation.

The nonprofit social service agencies at work in Tipton County need thousands of dollars every year to provide the essential programs that support the quality of life for everyone. The Tipton County Foundation, a member of the Indiana Association of United Ways, conducts and underwrites the expenses of an annual campaign, so that every dollar donated by the public can be used for grants to the partner organizations of the United Community Fund. How has this come about?

Shared Caring

United Way of Howard County Raises Social Impact Funds for Tipton County

When the Tipton County Community Fund (or Community Chest) began in the 1950s, it never joined the national United Fund organization, now called United Way Worldwide. When TCCF dissolved in 2006, its assets were transferred to the Tipton County Foundation, which has continued to accept donations and make “United Way type” grants to local human service agencies.

Thanks to the leadership and interest of the management and employees of FCA- Chrysler’s Tipton Transmission Plant, the Foundation collaborates with the United Way of Howard County, which has worked with the company for years.

United Way’s goal is to create long lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of the challenges facing our neighbors. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

We all win when children succeed in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are healthy.

All companies are urged to conduct an employee campaign for the United Way. Howard County will process all the contributions, which can be by payroll deduction, and send the Tipton County dollars to be distributed by TCF’s Grantmaking Committee and Board.

Impact on Human Services:
Projects Assisted by the United Community Fund

We all win when people are physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually healthy, free from violence, and enjoy leisure time.
