Making A Difference 

Uniting people and resources to build a stronger, healthier Carlisle & Cumberland County.


Every dollar counts!

No matter what you give 100% goes to help the programs that serve our greatest community need.

As a community based non-profit we are dependent upon the generosity of time!  It takes many hands to serve this community and we welcome volunteers to get involved on our committees, panels and for special events.


Help those who have no voice!

Local panels study agency budgets, audits, programs, goals and achievements each year along with our Community Needs Assessment. These volunteers work diligently to determine allocations for the coming year based on our communities most pressing needs.

An Evening for the Children GALA

April 7, 2018

This annual event, coordinated by our Women’s Leadership Council, raises much needed dollars to allow United Way to support three of our partner agencies who offer summer camp opportunities to children who might not otherwise be able to afford them.


Join the FIGHT 

Each year at United Way, we run a campaign to raise funds that allow us to support the 26 agencies and 41 programs in the Carlisle and Cumberland County footprint, chosen by our Community Impact Panels. The success of each Campaign is based on the help of many members of our community, whether it be local companies, small businesses, or individuals, who help by volunteering, advocating or donating.

Everyone matters!
