The United Way of Clark, Champaign & Madison Counties recently completed its 2023 campaign, raising a total of $1,100,989 in the three-county area. The campaign surpassed its goal of raising $1 million and exceeded last year’s total.
In Madison County, the campaign raised $88,438, a 77 percent increase in donations over the 2022 campaign. A total of 93 donors made that total possible.
“The support of the Madison County community will make a profound impact and allow us to provide funding for multiple non-profit organizations that are dedicated to addressing crucial needs within the community through impactful programs,” said Kerry Lee Pedraza, United Way executive director.
The funds raised in Madison County during the campaign will remain in Madison County to support programs that enhance health, promote responsible financial practices, and provide educational opportunities for young people. At least five local non-profit organizations will benefit, along with Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library of Madison County, 2-1-1 Information and Referral Services, Volunteers United, and the Emergency Food and Shelter Program.
