About Us

What
United Way of Tri-County is an independently-governed 501(c)3 nonprofit organization connected to a network of more than 1,300 local United Ways through United Way Worldwide. We have our own board of directors and focus our work on local solutions for local problems.

United Way of Tri-County’s strategic approach to community problem solving concentrates on collaboration and results. We achieve results through 30-plus direct and supported programs at over 50 partner agencies.

United Way advances the common good as MetroWest’s largest community-based investor in Education, Financial Stability, Health and Basic Human Needs – the building blocks for a good quality of life. After all, everyone deserves opportunities for a quality education that leads to a stable job, family-sustaining income through all of life’s stages, good health and a safe home.

Last year alone we raised over $5 million for community problem solving. Since our incorporation in 1997, we have invested over $20 million to solve our community’s most serious problems.

How
Advancing the common good is about community-wide change to help all of us. We are all interdependent and when we are stronger as individuals, together we build a stronger community.

In order to achieve real, lasting community-wide change, United Way recruits the people and organizations from across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. Together, we are taking action that makes a real difference today, while creating long-term solutions and measurable results.

More than 3,000 individuals and 100’s of organizations are already on board. But we need you, too. We invite you to be part of the change. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer. That’s what it means to Live United.

Why
When we Live United, we can tackle the toughest problems and make every neighborhood throughout MetroWest/495 Corridor, a place where people can realize their dreams.

Inclusion Statement
United Way of Tri-County endeavors to be a model of diversity and inclusion by embracing the differences in race, religion, gender, disability, nationality, age, sexual orientation and ethnic background.

United Way values diversity and realizes that diversity is a critical component to its success. Our ability to employ effective inclusion practices, by supporting the contribution of each individual, enables United Way of Tri-County to fulfill its mission of improving lives by mobilizing resources.
