Important Notice to Lake County Residents who Work Outside of Lake County

If you live in Lake County, but work in another county where you make a workplace donation through your employer's fundraising campaign, it's very important to be aware of the following:

A)  The ONLY way to ensure your gift benefits your home community of Lake County, is to designate your gift to United Way of LAKE COUNTY.

B)  Write or type United Way LAKE COUNTY on your pledge form so that your home United Way branch receives your support.

C)  If you do not see a place to specify this designation on either your paper or electronic pledge form, ask your workplace administrator. Do not be shy.

D) If you are unsure, you can always, donate direct via steps #1- #4 above.
