Advancing the Common Good: Creating Opportunities for a Better Life for All

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

That's why United Way's 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 People's Health

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

United Way's goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

Give Now

Through the Finney County United Way your gift is multiplied, as trained volunteers effectively address needs in our community. We make your caring count by identifying the greatest needs, meeting those needs, and showing measureable results. Your United Way gift stays local, working to improve lives in Finney County.
