A future of innovative impact and thriving United Ways


Indiana’s United Ways believe that long-term meaningful impact is achieved in communities when quality programs are combined with public policy and advocacy work. IUW's Advocacy Program:

  • Is non-partisan and supports sound policy principles;
  • Blends research, recommendations, and representation;
  • Seeks practical, long-term solutions to human needs;
  • Uses its convening power to craft compromise policies, balancing the needs of various constituencies; and
  • Supports national United Way initiatives while creating a state-level focus on administrative and legislative advocacy.
  • Provides support to local United Ways in their policy work, including presentations to boards and agency partners, webinars and advocacy.
