Donate to MCUM’s endowment at the Community Foundation of Bloomington and Monroe County.


Monroe County United Ministries (MCUM) provides affordable childcare to low-income working families in a licensed and accredited center that can serve up to 97 children and basic needs assistance to those in financial crisis. This assistance may come in the form of food, clothing, household items, cleaning supplies, referrals, etc. MCUM has been providing social services in Monroe County since 1939 and is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization (EIN # 35-1313090). MCUM receives support in many forms from more than 40 local faith communities, in addition to support from a wide variety of other sources, but our programs do not include a religious component.

Your Gift Strengthens The Monroe County Community

From the many families who are back on the road to self-sufficiency after meeting with MCUM’s trained caseworkers to the preschoolers who pass through MCUM’s doors better prepared for school, there is so much good done each and every day, and it is all because of you.

Community members like you play an essential role in sustaining MCUM’s Affordable Childcare and Emergency Services programs. Your gift helps improve lives by preventing homelessness, feeding hungry families, encouraging self-sufficiency, helping parents stay employed, and preparing children for success in school.

Your generosity makes a great positive impact. Each day, families across Monroe County struggle to secure basic needs. A gift of any size can do immeasurable good for a vulnerable family struggling to stay afloat.

Please give generously today. You can:

The support of community members like you has allowed MCUM to provide important services to Monroe County residents for 74 years. We are excited to be celebrating 75 years in service to the community in 2014, and we are grateful to be part of a community of caring supporters like you.

On behalf of the families and individuals we serve, thank you for your generosity!

Strategic Plan: Innovation, Leadership and Endurance
