How We Help

Local Giving for Local Needs 

When neighbors need assistance, it puts a serious burden not only on those individuals and families, but also on our local economy, workforce and quality of life. Support for the United Fund and its partner agencies helps meet these challenges and creates a lasting, positive impact in Talbot County.
