We live in a world that is increasingly divided, where politics, media, and economic factors push us further apart, making us feel isolated. And yet, every day, individuals and organizations are choosing to work towards a brighter future for us all. These are the Waymakers™. They are your neighbors volunteering at food pantries. They are your friends mentoring youth. They are your leadership choosing to allocate resources to support our community. They are you.
With a pulse on what people need most in our neighborhoods, United Way is the go-to partner for local change makers—or, as we like to call them, Waymakers. We’re on a mission to inspire and enable this community of Waymakers. They help us forge a new way forward, a united path forward, working daily to ensure that all community members thrive in health, education, and financial stability. We do this by:
(1) Mobilizing people and resources and investing them in the highest-impact nonprofits, programs, and projects throughout the region.
(2) Collaborating with our partners to develop smart, sustainable solutions to short- and long-term community challenges.
