Why United Way

At United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra, we envision a community where every individual has an opportunity to succeed and our community thrives.

In order to bring this vision to reality, we nurture our northern Nevada community relationships, build trust, and explore shared goals and alignments. United Way serves a unique role in the community, providing what some call a 'neutral table' for the community, a place where people who are passionate about an issue can come together and explore solutions on behalf of the community.

With our community partnerships, we look for lasting solutions, not 'band-aid' fixes for our most pressing problems. We raise awareness surrounding key issues that affect everyone and promote social and policy change that helps strengthen families and our community.
