Together we can support small businesses.

Welcome, United Way
of Central Indiana team!


Use your professional expertise to support a small business.

We invite you to join this initiative to support small businesses in our community impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. This effort will especially serve resource-scarce communities of color who have been disproportionately impacted by the health and economic impacts of the pandemic. Volunteering your time to support entrepreneurs in our community helps to grow our economy and combat poverty in Central Indiana.

 All work is done remotely by phone and video conferencing.
