Many of our local programs depend on Eureka Area United Fund contributions to fulfill their mission. We depend on the generosity of our friends and neighbors to meet those needs. No amount is too small, but generally one’s “fair share” is considered to be one hour’s pay per month. The Eureka Area United Fund challenges the members of the Eureka area to contribute their “fair share” to those agencies serving the needs of our community.
