Believe, accomplish, make a difference
We work with 51 partner programs to make a big difference in the Kennebec Valley. We believe that we can accomplish greater things together, and United Way has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a critical community convener. We mobilize local partners, businesses, community leaders, public officials as well as residents to expand opportunities available in our area to help people succeed. Our priority areas are Basic Needs, Health Care, Youth/Education and Financial Stability. In 2018, 22,701 local people received assistance from a United Way program. This means 30% of local people are directly supported by United Way!
Our goal is to create long-lasting change in our communities by addressing the underlying causes of the problems and challenges we face in our region. It takes everyone in the community to step up and LIVEUNITED, creating a brighter future for Kennebec Valley.
