The United Way of Vermillion funds ongoing programs – not one time events or costs of operation. However, operating costs can (and should!) be included as part of a program budget. Programs should have demonstrable objectives and results that improve the education, financial stability, or health of people in our community.

The United Way of Vermillion Board of Directors sets priorities annually based on current community needs, demographics, availability of funds, overall amount of requests, and quality of applications. We are more than happy to discuss your application and any questions you have, but please do not wait until the last minute – the earlier you contact us, the more assistance we can provide. Do not hesitate to contact us at or 605-624-5354.
