What is United Way?

“United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.”

United Way Worldwide has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a critical community convener that mobilizes local partners, including businesses (see our Corporate Partners), community leaders, public officials and community partners, and residents, to expand opportunities for people to succeed. We focus on three key building blocks:  education, financial stability, and health. We focus on the concerns and aspirations of our local community, but we are also part of a worldwide movement for change. With nearly 1,800 United Ways making a difference in 41 countries and territories, we are part of a worldwide movement bringing millions of people together to solve community problems.
