United Way strives to find the best and biggest ideas to strengthen and improve our communities.  This new mission is bringing more power and relevant solutions to our social problems.  Our donors and the communities have challenged us to reduce and eliminate the underlying causes of our issues – through the process of impact funding, we can do that with a more targeted focus on the root causes of our key issue: POVERTY.  Throughout our region, 1 in 6 live in poverty.

In Allegany and Mineral Counties, 60% of allocatable dollars raised goes directly to Impact Funding.

In Garrett and Hampshire Counties, 50%.

The goal of United Way is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems.  LIVE UNITED means being a part of that change.
