Who We Are

What is United Way?

Who We Are

Our mission is to mobilize the caring power of our community to advance the common good. To do this, we lead collective action around bold goals in education, financial stability, and health. More specifically, we live united by:

  • Convening partners around shared community goals.
  • Aligning community giving, advocating, and volunteering to achieve the goals.
  • Supporting strategic work that advances the goals.


Currently, United Way of Alamance County (UWAC) works with our partners to deliver programs and services that target community needs centered around the building blocks for a good life: income and financial stability, a quality education that leads to stable employment, and healthy lifestyles. Join us as we continue to address the underlying causes of community problems, transform lives, and create opportunities for a good life for all.


For more than 90 years, United Way of Alamance County (UWAC) has been fiercely committed to building strong, successful families and a better Alamance County. We are the area’s premier charitable organization. When you join the United Way team, you’re supporting a powerful movement to impact the county’s most pressing health and human service needs.

To assure the wisest investment of donor dollars, United Way of Alamance County uses volunteer-led community assessments to set funding priorities. The result is diverse programs that make a difference in the lives of your co-workers, neighbors, friends, family, and others in need.
