We know that to many United Way is well known, but not well understood. That's why we want to make sure you know what we do.

United Way of Clinton County, Iowa works to create a better oportunity for all residents by building stronger Clinton County communities where we live, work, and play. We work in the areas of Health/Wellness, Education, and Financial Stability to improve childhood and youth success, economic mobility, and good health.

We bring together donors, volunteers, businesses, nonprofits, faith-based, community leaders, government, experts, and those in need. Together we seek out Clinton County's toughest challenges, set sound strategies and goals, and then tackle them at their roots...in a UNITED WAY.
