Better Together: Building Equitable Communities in the Monadnock Region

The Local Crowd Monadnock and Monadnock United Way Are Teaming Up to Strengthen Our Community!

Join us for the Better Together: Building Equitable Communities in the Monadnock Region campaign from October 19 through November 13. All gifts given on TLC’s crowdfunding platform during this time will benefit Monadnock United Way’s (MUW) Better Together Annual Campaign.

Thanks to a generous challenge grant from John and Jean Hoffman, all gifts to the campaign will be matched dollar for dollar and new and increased gifts will be matched 2 dollars to 1!  [Note: Campaign will launch on October 19].

The Better Together Campaign goal is $1,277,000 and it is crucial that we hit this target to help our neighbors in need! Too many people in our region are silently suffering. We may not see or experience the extent of their pain and stress. But it exists.

Consider this. Prior to COVID-19:

  • We had the third-highest rate of child abuse and neglect in the state
  • Our children scored lower than the rest of the state in English and math
  • One-quarter of our residents were low-income. In the rest of NH, the rate is 1 in 5

These statistics are likely to get worse in the months to come.

Monadnock United Way and our partner agencies fight for children, education, and financial stability in every community throughout our region.  With your support, we will eliminate fear and uncertainty. We will lift up our region. We will make it vibrant in the face of hardship. For more information, visit
