About the United Way of Northern Arizona …
Our mission: Improving lives by mobilizing communities to create lasting changes in community conditions
Opportunities for a better tomorrow
UWNA is a local nonprofit organization that brings our community together and focuses resources on the most critical human-care needs in Northern Arizona. Although UWNA is part of the network of United Ways across our country, we are governed by a local volunteer board of directors. We have partnerships with government, business, the faith community, education, nonprofits and individuals.
As a convener, collaborator, funder, and leader in addressing health and-human service issues, UWNA fulfills a unique role. We monitor the needs of our community and respond quickly as issues and opportunities arise. And, thanks to the generous support of people throughout Northern Arizona, we’re helping to improve lives every day.
Since 1967, UNWA has been a trusted community leader because we set high standards for conduct — not just for ourselves, but also for our partners and collaborators. Investing in UWNA gives you the power to change your community and improve lives. We maximize your investment by combining your contribution with others and strategically supporting local programs — especially those that target the most pressing needs and focus on the root causes of our greatest challenges.
We are approachable, diverse, dynamic, innovative, and inspiring, and we exhibit integrity in delivering results. We work to build a community in which each person…
- Influences others in a positive way.
- Contributes to the community in a way that reflects their culture.
- Becomes the person they want to be.
Together, UNITED, we can inspire hope and create change.
By working together, we can create a brighter future and accomplish more than any single group.
