About the Norwalk Area United Fund
The Norwalk Area United Fund has been grounded in service to the Monroeville, Norwalk, and Wakeman communities for over 143 years when a group of concerned women formed the Ladies Union Aid Society. This group of women wanted to help their neighbors in need. They realized that a bit of assistance in a time of crisis could prevent further problems from happening. They also held the belief that people had the right to certain basic necessities and in leading lives with dignity.
That same philosophy, passion, and courage guides the Norwalk Area United Fund today. Under the direction of 24 full and 8 associate board members, our mission is to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. We believe in the inherent dignity of the individual and are always in service to the greater good of the community.
At our core we have the responsibility to raise funds which support programs that assist individuals and families. Our annual goal of $390,000 funds programs that change lives. We support programs that educate, that care for the health of our community members, and that support them in time of need. We also support programs that empower individuals to grow, learn, and develop necessary skills to become successful. We are proud of the fact that all money raised here, stays here to support our neighbors.
