United Way (UW), the largest privately funded non-profit in the world, is a community-led network of organizations, founded more than 100 years ago in the United States. Now, it operates successfully in more than 41 countries throughout the world. The ultimate goal of a United Way organization is to “mobilize communities to create lasting changes that will improve lives.” United Way is a local, volunteer-led foundation that advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. The focus is on education, income and health because these are the building blocks for an improved quality of life. UW recruits people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to facilitate change. It is a perfect tool for a nation seeking a sustainable future for its people.
