Who We Are

United Way’s Impact 100 is a group of 100 community partners that we believe are addressing the most vital health and human service needs. Every Impact 100 organization maintains a high bar of organizational accountability and effectiveness in terms of finances, governance and impact in the community. Our rubric included a variety of factors, and ultimately led to this initial Impact 100 being very diverse – in terms of geographic regions served, organizations led by people of color, focus areas and more. This year’s impact 100 organizations cover the following domains: child welfare, healthcare access, food security, housing and financial stability, positive youth development and early childhood development.

What We Do

We live in a world that is increasingly divided, where politics, media and economic factors push us further apart, making us feel isolated. And yet, everyday, there are individuals and organizations choosing to work towards a future that is brighter for us all. These are the Waymakers. They are your neighbors volunteering at food pantries. They are your friends mentoring youth. They are your leadership choosing to allocate resources to supporting our community. They are you.

With a pulse on what people need most in our neighborhoods, United Way is the go-to partner for local change makers—or, as we like to call them, Waymakers. We’re on a mission to inspire and enable this community of Waymakers. They help us forge a new way forward, a united path forward, working daily to ensure that all members of our community thrive in health, education and financial stability. We do this by:

  • Mobilizing people and resources and investing them in the highest-impact nonprofits, programs and projects throughout the region.
  • Collaborating with our partners to come up with smart, sustainable solutions to both short- and long-term community challenges.
