About Us

United Way of Southeast Alaska is an independently governed, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening lives, helping people, and improving community conditions in Southeast Alaska.  United Way of Southeast Alaska and our partner agencies work to create real, lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of problems within our communities.  We support community programs and initiatives that help those in need and also prevent problems from happening in the first place.

Our Purpose: United Way of Southeast Alaska collaborates with partner agencies to strengthen and improve the health, education and income stability of communities in Southeast Alaska.

Our Vision: United Way of Southeast Alaska addresses individual needs and improves lives by organizing the caring and collaborative power of our communities.

Our Core Values: Stewardship, Leadership, Service, Collaboration, and Caring

At United Way of Southeast Alaska, we believe that everyone should have the opportunities for a good life.  We believe everyone deserves a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That's why our work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

Education: Helping children and youth achieve their potential
Income: Promoting financial stability and independence
Health: Improving the health of individuals, families, and communities

Advancing the common good is about helping one person at a time and about changing systems to help all of us. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are healthy.

United Way of Southeast Alaska invites you to LIVE UNITED with us - to get involved by giving, advocating, and volunteering for the causes and issues that you care about and want to help improve. It takes all of us working together to create a brighter future.  When you reach out a hand to one you can influence the condition of all. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Give. AdvocateVolunteer. LIVE UNITED.
