United Way of Scott County Indiana is pleased to announce that we are continuing our grants from the COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant, made possible through a partnership between Lilly Endowment, Inc. and Indiana United Ways, the state professional association of which United Way of Scott County Indiana is a member. These special funds will be used to boost the efforts on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

United Way of Scott County Indiana has been a key convener and coordinator of our community’s response to meet human needs for decades. Without a robust local safety net, those in need are bound to become even more dire. “Thanks to generous support from the Lilly Endowment, Inc., we are now more strongly positioned to help our community deal with the immediate and long term impact of Covid-19,” said Michelle Matern, Board Chair for United Way of Scott County, IN.

The COVID-19 Economic Relief Initiative Grant calls for United Ways that receive funding to leverage partnerships and relationships to better meet Covid-related essential and basic needs, and to address other Covid-19 critical issues as they emerge. Interested organizations should consult Nancy Riley, Executive Director at

 or call 812-752-2586 for guidance on funding intent and application instructions.

New Website Makes It Easier To Help A Child

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Southeast Indiana (BBBSSI) is happy to announce the release of their new website,

“Our new website will make it easier for visitors to find information they need regarding volunteering or donating to help children in need,” explained Executive Director Gina Freeman. “The website is designed to be user friendly, and adapts for any type of device, so mobile users will have a similar experience to desktop users.”
“Regardless of whether a website visitor is a current volunteer needing information, or someone interested in making a difference in the life of a child, they can now easily find what they need online. Now that we are serving 6 counties (Jefferson, Jackson, Scott & Jennings in Indiana, and Carroll and Trimble in Kentucky) we need additional volunteers and an increase in donations to remain viable.”

The new website project was donated by WebX Marketing & Design, a Madison-based agency owned by local resident Suzanne Bradley. “I appreciate the opportunity to work with Big Brothers Big Sisters” stated Bradley. “Their old website was outdated and not user friendly, and our team had the skills to upgrade it and bring it into the 21st Century.”

“We were referred to Suzanne by a local business owner,” said Gina. “She asked the right questions about our goals and objectives and had a convincing portfolio. We are delighted with the new website, and have no hesitation in recommending her agency to others in need of a website upgrade.”

Big Brothers & Big Sisters specializes in matching caring adult volunteers with children in need of adult friendship and guidance. For those interested in volunteering or making a donation, or just interested in seeing what’s new, they can view the new website on their computer, tablet or mobile device by visiting
