Excerpt from United Way Worldwide Leadership Letter in 2018 Annual Report

Throughout its history, United Way has helped passionate people make a difference in their communities. We go where they are to help them find organizations that focus on causes they care about, build partnerships and multiply their impacts. In today’s interconnected world, it’s up to non-profits, businesses and community leaders to work together and innovate to provide tools to make a difference. Paired with ambitious goals in education, health and financial stability, United Way is determined to bring people together to help communities to reach their potential.

Most of us are hungry for connection, idea sharing and coalitions that help people live better lives. The urgent needs of communities compel us to build community at scale by empowering everyone to be part of the solution.

The future of philanthropy and the future of community building are here. We invite you to join us to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community.
