The Henry County United Fund works to enhance the quality of life for the people of Henry County through service, support and collaboration.
HCUF brings people together from many organizations — civic, service and corporate — to tackle the issues that matter most. By developing partnerships and collaborations with a variety of groups, we engage the best minds to achieve results that none of us can accomplish alone.
Each fall, we conduct a fundraising campaign by approaching people in their workplaces and individually. After the campaign concludes December 31, money that has been pledged and/or donated is allocated to nonprofit agencies serving Henry County citizens.
Who to Help? How Much? The Community Decides.
A volunteer Allocations Committee visits each agency requesting funding. They review extensive documentation the agencies have submitted in an application, including financial statements, tax-exempt status and the agency’s purpose — the target population, services and goals. Following site visits and application reviews, the committee proposes funding for the approaching April 1-March 31 cycle. The United Fund Board then votes to approve the allocations.
