United Way of Champaign County's 9th Power of the Purse event was held on Thursday, May 4th at Pear Tree Estate – and was it a night to remember! We raised a total of $111,000 thanks to the support of our generous sponsors, purse donors, and guests. Our Presenting Sponsor, Northwestern Mutual, has been with us from the very start. They are committed to our cause and we are grateful for making the evening possible.  


Show Up United

Together we can make our community more equitable and stronger

The power of caring and connection has never been greater. 

The collective effort of donors and volunteers in Champaign County helped our community get through the pandemic. Thanks to those efforts United Way of Champaign County and our partners were able to respond quickly and help more people than ever.

But there is still more work to do.


Unique way for seniors to give back

Seniors can make charitable rollover donations from their IRA.

If you’re required to take a minimum annual distribution from your IRA, you know this amount is ultimately subject to taxation.

But there’s a way to save on your taxes – and support our community.

With rollover contributions from your IRA, you can donate up to $100,000 each year to charitable organizations such as United Way of Champaign County – completely tax-free.
