We believe that the best way to achieve our mission is to support coordinated efforts of all local United Ways throughout the state. We work together to improve lives in the areas of Health, Education, and Financial Stability – the building blocks of a strong, vibrant state:


We want everyone in Minnesota to have access to the health supports and necessary care for optimal health and well-being. This becomes possible with strong families, support for independent living and increased access to healthcare.


We want all children, youth and young adults throughout Minnesota to have the opportunity to achieve their potential. To achieve this, we must cultivate readiness to learn, support school success and support positive youth development.


We want everyone in Minnesota to be financially stable. This requires that we help meet basic needs, promote affordable housing and encourage stable employment.
