Community Impact

Make an impact in your community.

Where there is a community need, there’s a United Way. From advancing health and education to strengthening livelihoods and community resilience, we connect people to possibility in hundreds of communities throughout Tennessee. Join us in taking action so all can thrive.

Our United Ways across the state achieve community impact by:

  • advocating on public policy issues; 
  • developing initiatives to address specific problems in our communities; 
  • convening and participating in task forces and coalitions; and
  • working with traditional and nontraditional partners including business, education, government, health and human service providers, media, community members, faith-based providers, and neighborhood organizations.

We focus on Youth Opportunity, Financial Security, Healthy Communities, and Community Resiliency as the key pillars to improving the quality of life in Tennessee.
