The Starke United Fund supports initiatives that promote financial stability and independence, programs that help children and youth succeed and projects that strengthen and support families and improve the health of our community. Each year, members with the Starke United Fund work to create long-lasting change by addressing the underlying issues in our community and empowering citizens.
Starke United works in collaboration with various other agencies and members of the community. Last year thanks to generous donations, nearly $30,000 was granted to many of Starke County’s non-profit organizations. Starke United works very hard to assist as many people as possible, but they can’t do it alone. As the 2015 Starke United Fund Campaign kicks off, you are asked to join in and lend a hand.
You can donate in a few different ways. You can either give by payroll deduction at your workplace, online, or by mail. You can donate just once or at an interval that is convenient and affordable for you. Starke United fund is offering a unique opportunity now through March 31, 2016.
Corinne Becknell Lucas, program communications director with the Northern Indiana Community Foundation explained how you can double your donation, “Right now those dollars will be matched dollar for dollar through a campaign that’s going through the Lilly Endowment to build up community funds. So that’s really exciting so if you want your dollars to double then you want to do the Starke United Fund match.”
If you would like your gift matched be sure to specify by either writing ‘SUF Match’ in the memo of your check or by notifying your workplace. With your help and generosity Starke United can continue to impact lives for the better in Starke County. Contact 877-432-6423 with any questions.
