dyer & lake COUNTIES


Dyer County ran their first ever campaign in 1992 and since that time has gone on to raise over $9.15 Million. In 2009 Lake County was added to establish a Region. There is a local Advisory Board responsible for overseeing the raising and investing of dollars into the community.

We are dependent on over 57 companies, organizations and government entities that run annual campaigns with their employees to raise funds. With these companies and other individuals that give directly we have over 2,200 people that annually give to the campaign. It is because of this generosity that we are able to reach out and lift up the Dyer and Lake communities through local programs that are getting amazing results and making a positive impact on the needs of our neighbors, co-workers and family members.
