Recovery is possible—and this year, you can improve more local lives with this exclusive match opportunity!

Positive mental health and well-being allows people to live their lives to the fullest. Mental health affects the way we think, feel, and act. When we’re in a positive frame of mind, we’re better able to enjoy life and buffer against stress—but when our mental health declines, it’s harder to handle life’s challenges and make healthy choices.

This fall, when you grow your gift, the growth portion will be matched*—helping even more people with mental health problems, like Laura.

Help someone today and get matched

Together, we can create ripples of positive impact in our community that swell to waves of change.

*This growth matching opportunity is made possible thanks to the generosity of local philanthropists Leslie & David Bissett and Michael & Donna Kanovsky. It is available up to a maximum of $800,000. Only contributions supporting United Way programs and initiatives will be matched. Learn more.
