Dollars raised through the Tornado Relief Fund will be used for intermediate and long-term needs as requested and verified by our partner agencies and collaborating non-partner agencies. These funds will be distributed without administrative fees to agencies that are actively engaged in the disaster recovery. Agencies must clearly prove services provided and demonstrate need for financial support. Organizations that receive United Way disaster fund assistance will be evaluated and held accountable.

Money raised by the Heart of Illinois United Way stays in our community supporting critical health and human care programs focused on the education, income and health needs of central Illinois. These programs help more than 100,000 people each year throughout Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, Marshall, Stark and Putnam counties.
