What We Do

St. Landry-Evangeline United Way supports local agencies and non-profits by conducting an annual fundraising campaign, primarily through workplace presentations and payroll deduction.  While this has traditionally been the main function of United Way, it is no longer sufficient or effective in tackling the challenges facing most communities today.

Today, United Ways find ways to collaborate and partner with non-profits, businesses, civic organizations and government to find solutions to the many problems the community faces.

St. Landry-Evangeline United Way leads many initiatives and projects related to the three focus areas - Education, Health, and Financial Stability (self sufficiency).  See a complete list on our website, www.uwsle.org

For over 50 years, St. Landry-Evangeline United Way has been focused on issues that really matter, supporting programs and projects that lift up our citizens, promote families, and address global issues like education, health, and income.
