United Way of Greater Portland

United Way of Greater Portland is where the community comes together to help children, individuals, and families in ways that create a brighter future for all. For 90 years, United Way of Greater Portland's mission has been to improve people's lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. Today, we are uniting individuals and organizations around our community's shared vision, Thrive2027, three 10-year goals to improve education, financial stability, and health for every person in Greater Portland. With community partners, we build on strategies that are known to achieve the best results, and we rigorously evaluate our progress. And, because we believe everyone has a role to play in building a thriving community, we actively seek to engage donors, advocates, and volunteers to create measurable, long-lasting community change.
