We’d like to thank all the nonprofit agencies who submitted exceptionally worthy programs to the 2020 Vision Council – Community Investment funding cycle. This cycle, the requests more than doubled the amount of funds available, as 44 programs applied for funding. This increased need in our communities made the job of our Vision Council volunteers especially difficult. However, we are pleased to announce that Lakes Area United Way will fund 20 programs throughout Crow Wing and Cass counties for this one year-cycle. In 2018, the United Way made the decision to increase each program’s award amount to provide agencies with the funding required to create meaningful impact in our community in the realms of Health, Education and Financial Stability. In doing this, we are creating greater community impact through programs that are making a difference.

Thank you for the generous support of United Way of Cass and Crow Wing County. We appreciate the generosity of all United Way contributors.
We are looking for individuals who share our vision, mission and values to join our working Board of Directors. If you are interested in being a part of this great organization and helping ensure our continued success please contact Hannah Sorenson at email@example.com. Being a member of the Board of Directors is a great way to help if you don’t have the time or the desire to commit to working at the barn with the participants and the horses.
We also need Volunteers at the barn. If you can commit to even a couple of hours a week on Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday we could definitely use your help. We offer volunteer training so you don’t have to be ‘experienced’ with horses or working with people who face special challenges. You just need a desire to help make someone’s life a bit happier for 30 minutes each week. The smiles will be your reward! Complete the ONLINE APPLICATION located in the Get Involved section of this website or call 888.828-9920 or 218-454-3228 and leave a message.
