Who We Are

United Way of Caldwell County strengthens our community and creates opportunity for every citizen by developing partnerships to address our greatest challenges.

United Way works with local programs to provide resources to individuals and families in crisis today, while working year round to improve community conditions and create lasting solutions.

United Way Advances the Common Good

WE focus on protecting services vital to the immediate BASIC NEEDS of the most vulnerable members of our community; while making long term investments in EDUCATION, HEALTH, and FINANCIAL STABILITY because these are the building blocks for a good quality life.

WE believe we all WIN when a person succeeds in school and life, when a neighborhood turns around, when families have good health and people have solid jobs.

WE bring together people and organizations from across the community who bring the PASSION, EXPERTISE, and RESOURCES needed to get things accomplished.

WE invite you to be a part of the change.


The Mission of the United Way of Caldwell County is to measurably improve the lives of both individuals and families in Caldwell County by uniting the resources of donors, volunteers, agencies, and the community while maintaining the highest level of integrity and accountability.
