100th Anniversary Open House
August 5 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Join Fox Valley United Way as we celebrate 100 years of serving Kane and Kendall Counties. Hosted during the August First Friday in Downtown Aurora, come out and celebrate with us! Free and open to the public, this celebration will include children’s activities, refreshments and more!
Fox Valley United Way’s history began in 1922 with the founding of the Aurora Social Service Federation. The organization incorporated the United Way name and community tenets in 1972 and was renamed the United Way of the Aurora Area. The name was changed in 2004 to Fox Valley United Way following the merger with the United Funds of Yorkville and Plano. Today Fox Valley United Way represents 23 communities in Kane and Kendall Counties and supports over 50 social service agencies serving the families and individuals that reside within these communities.
As we embark on our next 100 year, we hope that you will join us in making a difference by ensuring all local families and their children have access to vital early childhood resources and educational opportunities. GIVE • ADVOCATE • VOLUNTEER Together, we can change the future of our communities!
