Executive Director

Alicia Hazelwood

Lifelong Grant County resident Alicia Hazelwood serves as executive director of the United Way of Grant County.

A graduate of Marion High School, Alicia received her bachelor’s degree in political science from Manchester University

and later completed a master’s of business administration degree from Indiana Wesleyan University. She also holds

certificates in Nonprofit Leadership and Fundraising Management, both from the IU School of Philanthropy, and has

been working with the United Way of Grant County in August 2012.


Alicia is responsible for being the public representative of the United Way and represents the mission of the United

way to those in the local community.


When asked what she likes most about her job, Alicia said,

“I love that I get to spend every day trying to support work that is focused on helping the people in the community

where I live and grew up. I am thankful each day that people trust me and the United Way to be responsible with

their charitable gifts to make a difference.”


Alicia believes that the United Way is not just an organization, but it is a way of life. She talks about how it is a giving

vehicle for so many people that wouldn’t be able to give otherwise, while also being an organization that not only meets

needs but meets people where they are.


Alicia loves getting to represent the United Way and getting to serve the community of Grant County, and she has a word for you!

“There is no other organization that works so hard to make sure that programming is not only serving

the community but working to make culture and culture and community!”
