About Us

OUR MISSION

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

OUR GOALS

In 2008, United Way World Wide initiated a 10-year program designed to achieve the following goals by 2018:

1. Improve education and cut 1.2 million high school dropouts per year in half.

2. Help people achieve financial stability and get 1.9 million working families who are still financially unstable on the road to economic independence.

3. 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 of a national network, committed partners and public engagement capacity we can achieve them. By everyone giving a little, WE can give a lot.
