To advance the common good and mobilize the caring power of our communities, we will:
- Ignite a social movement, and mobilize people to action — to give, advocate, and volunteer to improve the conditions in which they live.
- Connect all sectors of society — individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments — to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families.
- Raise, invest and leverage philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained impact in local communities.
- Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure — in real terms — improvements in education, income and health.
Diversity and Inclusion Statement:
Diversity and Inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED. To effectively and authentically address our communities' most pressing needs requires and outward and intentional commitment to inclusion across all dimensions (race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, mental or physical ability, etc.).
United Way Equity Statement:
Equity is the intentional inclusion of everyone in society. Equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation and other identities are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education and health outcomes.
Vision for Equity
We recognize structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities which United Way seeks to dismantle. Our United Way network strives to engage community members, especially those whose voices have traditionally been marginalized. We work with residents and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, supports, opportunities and networks they need to thrive. We commit to leveraging all of our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building, advocacy) to create more equitable communities.
