Partnership Drives Change
You can make a difference
Achieving shared common goals by working together – this is the core of what we do at United Way of Anchorage. Yes, the goals are big and complex, and we need your help to accomplish them. By combining our efforts, we can be more efficient and effective. Creating a thriving community in economically challenging times takes commitment, coordination and individual engagement. You are a vital part of this work.
Strong Financially Stable Families
With your help, United Way is empowering families to save for the future, build assets, and increase their income levels.
Successful Prepared Kids
Together we can ensure that all children are ready for kindergarten, stay on track and graduate prepared for work, life and continued education.
Healthy Kids and Adults
Connecting people to affordable healthcare options and supporting healthy life choices is a community responsibility.
Homelessness in Anchorage is solvable, and we are uniquely poised to do it now. Never before have so many partners – community members, social service agencies, government, faith organizations, and businesses – taken a stand as a community that homelessness should be as rare and as brief as possible in our city.
When you need help finding help, United Way’s Alaska 211 is there. This free, confidential and multilingual statewide referral system for health and human services helped more than 28,000 Alaskans last year get connected to available resources that best fit their needs.
