Our Mission

United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

Our Goals

  • Improve education, and cut the number of high school dropouts — 1.2 million students, every year — in half.

  • Help people achieve financial stability, and get 1.9 million working families — half the number of lower-income families who are financially unstable — on the road to economic independence.

  • Promote healthy lives, and increase by one-third the number of youth and adults who are healthy and avoid risky behaviors.

These goals are ambitious, but with your help, and by utilizing our core strengths — a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity — we can achieve them.
