About Us

Who We Are

Since 1946, United Way of Lane County has served our community by bringing people together to give, advocate, and volunteer.

We believe that when we come together and put all of our resources to work, we can solve our most pressing issues and create opportunities for a better life for all.

We are one of over 1,800 United Ways around the world. While we benefit from the support of a worldwide network, we focus on the needs of our local community.

We are guided by an active, local board of directors. These dedicated community members set our priorities and ensure we are always working to serve our unique community needs. Our work is carried out by a talented, knowledgeable, and passionate staff committed to making sure we get things done.

We believe that diversity – both cultural diversity and diversity of thought – strengthens our ability to actualize our mission, vision, philosophy, and values. We are committed to having teams of employees and volunteers that reflect and celebrate all aspects of the diversity in our community.
