Private-Sector Fund

Operation UNITE is a Kentucky 501(c)3 non-profit corporation.

UNITE operates a Private-Sector Fund for individual and corporate donations in support of its education/prevention and youth outreach, treatment, and law enforcement initiatives. All gifts are tax deductible as allowed by law, and 100 percent of your donation will be used for programs in the initiative(s) you specify.


Education & Youth Outreach

The cornerstone of UNITE’s efforts are programs focused on youth. These initiatives seek to empower youth to remain free from alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs, and to become leaders within their school and community.

This is achieved by developing drug prevention, intervention and leadership programs, and by providing drug-free, youth-targeted activities.

Two of UNITE’s signature youth programs are Camp UNITE – a free, week-long, residential leadership/adventure camp for middle school-aged youth – and the “I Am UNITE” Scholarship program.

UNITE operates a Treatment Referral Line – 1-866-908-6483 – to assist individuals and their families seeking assistance with a drug addiction.
