About United Way of Rockbridge

Our Mission

United Way of Rockbridge (UWR) takes a leadership role in improving the quality of life of the people in the cities, towns, and unincorporated areas of Rockbridge County, Virginia by assessing needs, raising and allocating funds for charitable purposes, and ensuring the appropriate use of those resources.

Our Purpose


To assess, on a continuing basis, the need for human service programs; to seek solutions to human problems; to assist in the development of new or the expansion or modification of existing human service programs; to promote preventative activities, and foster cooperation among local, state and national agencies serving the community.


To develop as fully as possible the financial resources, both governmental and voluntary, needed to meet the human service needs of the community and reduce the number of appeals for financial support for services.



To muster community support and commitment for the entire United Way enterprise through a systematic communications program which both speaks and listens to the community.


To manage United Way operations effectively, and to offer assistance to agencies wishing to improve their management skills.
