Our mission is to provide a forum for mutual support and training for local United Ways. We keep a broad, statewide perspective and support each local United Way by encouraging collaboration and providing support. We conduct statewide conferences to discuss various topics and share ideas and best practices.
GIVE WHERE YOU LIVE
By supporting your local United Way, you will provide the opportunity for everyone in your community to have a safe, healthy and productive life. Your support will educate and empower our children, provide our neighbors with healthy food and access to healthcare, help adults keep steady jobs and help them save for the future. Together we can make a difference.
United Ways of Minnesota was created to maximize the benefit of a statewide organization for local United Ways. Our priorities include sharing and exchanging best practices, successes, resources and management. Our Statewide Association Board of Directors comprised of one executive director and board members from the local member United Ways. Our board of directors meets six times per year and maintains a committee structure that addresses executive and legislative affairs, training, planning and communications.
