About United Way

Transforming Lives and Entire Communities


Together, we’ll build a stronger community for us all to live, work and raise our families.

These are aspirations we all share:

  • a good education for our children
  • a roof over our heads
  • a meal on the table and
  • the security that comes with financial self-sufficiency
Your support makes this possible.

Since 1925, Valley of the Sun United Way has unified diverse partners, donors, business supporters, nonprofits, government and faith-based communities to build a stronger Valley for us all.

Because of you we can help break the cycle of poverty together. No other organization unites as many people to fight poverty in as many ways.

United Way uses every dollar, every volunteer hour and every bit of your support to:

  • Ensure kids succeed in school
  • End hunger
  • End homelessness
  • Increase financial stability of families

You can fight poverty in countless ways. Change won’t happen alone. We must unite and we must fight.
