United Way of Northwest Michigan (UWNWMI) is pleased to announce the successful merger of United Way of Wexford-Missaukee Counties (UWWM) within their organization. The merger is effective July 1, 2023 and comes as a result of a thorough evaluation and mutual agreement between UWNWMI and UWWM, recognizing the potential for increased efficiency, effectiveness and impact in serving the communities of Northwest Michigan.
By combining efforts, UWNWMI will be better equipped to address the ongoing needs of our communities effectively. The consolidation of administrative functions will result in increased efficiency, allowing more time, energy, and resources to be directed to improving lives and creating lasting change across the region.
Funds raised in Wexford and Missaukee counties will continue to stay within those communities to address local needs and priorities. This localized approach will enable UWNWMI to maintain a targeted focus on the unique challenges faced by each county while leveraging combined resources to amplify their impact.
