Collaborating for Community: United Way + VWLIVE + You
The Van Wert Area Performing Arts Foundation presenting Van Wert Live ticketed events at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center and The Grandstand, is collaborating with the United Way of Van Wert County. This collaboration will provide free ticket access to individuals and groups served by the agencies of the United Way of Van Wert County. Anyone can contribute to the fund which will be evenly distributed among the agencies who have opted to take part. The agencies can then make an impact on the lives of the individuals that they serve by providing tickets for their enjoyment.

Here are some examples of how United Way agencies have benefitted from the use of Niswonger Performing Arts Center tickets.
LOVE Inc. has used Niswonger tickets to reward those who have completed a program. They also use tickets to reward Volunteers for service to their mission.
“Love INC rewards our volunteer ministry leaders and Transformational class graduates with NPAC tickets and will benefit from this collaboration between Van Wert Live and the United Way. We are tremendously grateful for these two agencies that do so much for the Van Wert community.” – Erica Petrie, Executive Director
The YWCA has provided tickets that were contributed through a donor as gifts to those benefiting from their housing services.
“The YWCA loves to give kids the opportunity to see a show and an experience they may not have had otherwise. To see their faces light up and know they enjoyed themselves makes it all worth it.” – Kim Laudick, Executive Director”
The United Way of Van Wert County’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of people and organizations within the county to advance the common good. The VWAPAF Vision is to make Van Wert an entertainment destination. This collaboration builds community by leveraging and channeling resources to those in need. By supporting the United Live campaign, more individuals in Van Wert County will be able to access and be impacted by the life-giving power of the performing arts.
