Welcome to Kewanee Area United Way......serving Henry and Stark Counties

Working Together For Solutions

Kewanee Area United Way works with government, non-profit and for profit organizations to form collaborations and partnerships to avoid unnecessary duplications of service. This ensures that your dollars are used efficiently and effectively to address the root causes of poverty in our community.

Improving The Kewanee Area

For many years, the Kewanee Area United Way has been bringing together people and resources to improve lives within our communities. As a leading non-governmental health and human services partner in the community, the Kewanee Area United Way provides a way for people to give back to the community and to help others in their time of need. United Way supported programs impact the lives of 4 out of 10 persons in our area.

Helping The Community For Over 50 Years

Kewanee Area United Way has been serving Kewanee area for more than 50 years. All monies donated stay in the Kewanee area to serve Kewanee area citizens.

Our Mission

“The mission of the Kewanee Area United Way is to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another.”

Our Vision

“To be a community-based support organization which energizes and inspires people to make a difference; which works with the community to identify human care issues; and, which increases the resources available to address these issues.”

On 12/05/13 Kewanee Area United Way celebrated INTERNATIONAL VOLUNTEERS DAY 2013 by honoring the Black Hawk East Campus students who participated in the United Way 2013/2014 Campaign.

What's New

The Kewanee Area United office is moving from the Y.M.C.A. to the new Henry County Senior Citizens Center..  The move will better accommodate Staff and Volunteers and enable KAUW to continue to maintain its significant presence within the communities they serve.  This is a tremendous step for the future development of our organization.  KAUW has rented two offices within the South Street Center which quadruples our current accommodations.  This move is bittersweet as our office has been located within the Y.M.C.A. for over half a century but for the growth of our organization this move was emanate and necessary.


Kewanee Area United Way will be moving into their new offices the week of August 18th, located in the South Street Center, 200 East South St. Kewanee, IL. 61443

We are asking that you update your records to reflect our new address. We will be keeping our same number of (309) 853-5158.  Currently we are waiting for our phone service to be switched over which may cause a few days of delay if you are trying to reach us.
