We are the hand-raisers, the game changers. For more than 60 years, United Way of Southern Nevada has united our community to improve the lives of every person in Southern Nevada.

Our Mission

To unite our community to improve people's lives.

Our Vision

United Way of Southern Nevada is innovative and collaborative in our efforts to create a better community for all. 

Our Values

Collaboration, Integrity, Innovation, Diversity and Accountability.



We unite community partners to fight for Southern Nevada.

United Way of Southern Nevada brings people, organizations and resources together to help our community respond and recover. Together with our donors, volunteers and partners, we fight for Southern Nevada and provide help for those who need it most. When you donate to UWSN, you help local families stay in their homes, put food on the table and keep the lights on so parents can go back to work and children can get the education they deserve.




We measure our work in lives changed.


We make an impact, together.

United Way of Southern Nevada stands at the center of our community to provide solutions to Southern Nevada's toughest problems. We invest in innovative solutions in education, workforce development and community support to create a community where everyone can succeed.

Learn about our community impact.

We listen to every voice. 

We work with our Southern Nevada community to not only understand our most pressing local issues, but also what is causing them. This way we can develop strategies to address them now and build pathways out of poverty for the future. 



We take action. 

We know that not one organization alone can solve our community's toughest problems. We mobilize the people and resources needed across the public, private and philanthropic sectors to build the foundation for a better community for all.

Commitment to Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

We believe that every person in Southern Nevada must have equal access to solving community problems. 
We welcome the unique perspectives and experiences that individuals bring to advancing our mission and progressing our fight for the success of every person in our community.
We take the broadest possible view of diversity understanding that everyone has different values, beliefs and lived experiences. We value the intersectionality, the interconnected fabric of experiences including but not limited to race, class, gender, nationality, sexual orientation, and disability, that develops each person’s unique identity. 
We commit to entering partnerships and programs that address the inequities keeping Nevadans from success. 
We dedicate ourselves to using these principles for our business and our communities and invite others to join us in uniting for Nevada’s success.


When you give to United Way of Southern Nevada, you're supporting the entire community, not just one cause.

We surround our community with the programs and resources that address today's biggest issues and help prevent tomorrow's.



Volunteering can be a fun and deeply rewarding experience where you can make immediate and lasting change by improving lives and building a stronger community.

You can make an impact by donating your time to local organizations who need your help.
