The mission of the United Way is to improve peoples lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities.
Across the country, the United Way activates community resources to make the greatest possible impact. The United Way system includes approximately 1,400 community-based United Way organizations. Each is independent, separately incorporated and governed by local volunteers.
The United Way brings communities together to focus on the most important human needs- building partnerships, forging consensus and leveraging resources to make a measurable difference. Focus areas are identified at the local level and vary from community to community.
