We are NOT just fundraisers. We are hand-raisers, friend-raisers & game-changers.


We are dedicated to helping McLeod County be a stronger, healthier & more United place to live for all. We do this by being a hub for individuals, small businesses, large corporations, and faith communities - people who want to do good in McLeod County. By using collective action we can make true impact.
