Each United Way is independently governed by a volunteer board to best meet our local needs and opportunities. We adhere to a stringent set of membership standards that focus on governance, ethics, financial management, and general operations.
Through United Way of Rockbridge (UWR), you receive the scale and capacity of a $5 billion global enterprise, recognized by 98% of all Americans, but organized and operated at an accessible community level.
United Way brings together citizens, community leaders, business, the faith community, government, non-profit organizations and other institutions to determine the most critical human issues that require collective, not just individual, action. Issues range from basic human needs – food, shelter and emergency assistance – to emerging and growing issues such as affordable housing, services and support for seniors, and positive youth development.
