Making a better Nashville

About Us

United Way is making a better Nashville by creating strategic, scalable solutions focused on education, financial stability and health. These are the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. Creating solutions in these areas moves people from dependence to independence.

Our goal is to create long lasting changes that prevent problems from happening in the first place.

United Way of Metropolitan Nashville is committed to maximizing your investment in the community. Our goal is to produce a minimum 10:1 return annually. Based on 2014 operating expenses, actual return on investment for 2014 was 14:1. Operating expenses include direct program costs, fundraising & marketing expenses, management, and general expenses. 

We invite you to be a part of the change. United together, we can inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.
