More than 91,900 of our friends and neighbors were helped by United Way of Greater McHenry County partner agencies last year. That's one out of every four fantastic McHenry County residents. Each year, local volunteers evaluate the needs of our community, thoroughly review each agency and program applying for funding, identify which ones will best address those needs, and decide how available funds will be distributed. Give where you live! Your dollar stays local! United Way ensures your contribution goes to the programs and services that help people in need in greater McHenry County.
