Donations to the Heart of Illinois United Way Community Impact Fund stay in central Illinois to support vital programs in Peoria, Tazewell, Woodford, Stark, Marshall, and Putnam counties.

While donations to our Community Impact Fund are tracked and strategically invested back into the community’s most critical needs, we also honor a donor’s choice to direct their charitable gifts.
