Why United Way

Our Approach

We unite the community. We mobilize resources. We create change.

At United Way, we bring individuals, businesses, nonprofits and government decision-makers together to have tough conversations, mobilize the resources and make smart investments. By bringing together diverse voices and resources, we bring the community together in a way no single organization can, to develop, fund and scale collective solutions that attack our community’s most pressing problems at their roots. From education to health, from economic empowerment to social services, we’re dedicated to building a thriving future for every individual and family in our community.

United we win, if we live as one.

We are here to make our neighbors’ struggles, our struggles. Their victories, our victories.

We are here to be the hand-raisers, the game-changers, the problem-solvers. United Way of Greater Nashville reaches nine counties across the state of Tennessee. Together, we can be the voice for those who are struggling. Those who have been left behind or forgotten.

Together we can create bold, measurable change. Every dollar counts, and every person can make a difference.

Together, we can Live United.
