What We Do

UWIV Mission Statement

United Way of the Inland Valleys unites people, ideas, and resources with our community to improve lives.

UWIV Vision Statement

United Way envisions a world where all individuals achieve their human potential through education, financial stability, and housing.

In order to live better, we must live United.

When you support United Way of the Inland Valleys, you can be sure that your investment will be responsibly spent to achieve the greatest positive results in your community.

Most of our problems didn't develop overnight, but with the rate of our regional growth, some new ones may pop up before the morning comes.  Meeting these challenges requires an organization ready to take on these concerns, whether they are of long standing or are emerging with changing times. It takes focus, responsiveness and discipline to achieve lasting and meaningful change. Most of all, it takes people in our community who care.

United Way's leadership role in the Inland region enables us to bring together people who have a stake in our community to ask the tough questions. We believe that the most effective way to care is with an intelligent, measured approach - assessing the problems, researching the solutions and gauging the results.

We don't just collect and distribute money. We multiply its value by leveraging donations, government funding, grants, people and resources. We fund programs that make a difference in our community. And, we hold both our community partners and ourselves accountable for achieving real impact with every dollar you invest.
