Community Work

Across every glimpse of our community, across landscapes and lives—24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year—United Way is at work helping make this a better place to live.

  • United Way works to identify the needs in the community, recognizing that most needs are complex and require multiple solutions and we help agencies put in place the programs to meet those needs.
  • We ask “why not?” when we see potential for improvement and find ways to help achieve a better community.
  • We gather and distribute charitable resources—gifts of energy and gifts of means—with focus that encourages organized use of all gifts to leverage extraordinary results.
  • We partner with agencies who bring extraordinary expertise and understanding to meet needs in areas of education, financial stability, and health.
  • We help put in place the tools to address the things that can help make lives better today, and tomorrow.

United Way of Metropolitan Nashville currently works with 63 local agencies to fund 144 programs. Over the past decade, we have invested over $200 million dollars into the community. By focusing on the building blocks of a good life: Education, Financial Stability and Health, United Way is advancing the common good.
