UNITED 365

United 365 Business Circle

It doesn't take much to give back to the community!

You don't have to be a major corporation to make a difference. United Way of Yellowstone County invites your business to participate in promoting lasting, positive change for all in our local community by joining the UNITED 365 Business Circle. 

As a business owner, you already know the value of a strong community. So much depends on it! It determines the status of our local economy and our livelihoods. It defines our lifestyles, our welfare and ultimately our futures. It affects the ability of your customers to afford your service and products. For a dollar a day, or $365 a year, your business becomes a member of the UNITED 365 Business Circle and paves a path for our community to grow stronger and thrive.

What is the UNITED 365 Business Circle?

While United Way of Yellowstone County has been bringing business, individuals, and organizations together to advance the common good for the last 60 years, a new initiative is starting to make philanthropy easier and more rewarding for all businesses, new or established in our communities. We are inviting businesses to become UNITED 365 Business Circle members and investors in United Way of Yellowstone County in a variety of ways, detailed below.
