About Us

United Way of Southern Nevada is part of a worldwide movement that began over 125 years ago to create communities where all children and families can succeed.

With a strong foundation of community connections formed through over 58 years of history, United Way of Southern Nevada has been solving community issues since 1957.

We provide cradle-to-career support for children, because the global economy demands education beyond high school. A better educated community leads to enhanced economic development and an expansion of work opportunities resulting in a better quality of life for the entire community.

To ensure that today’s students and families are equipped for 21st century challenges, we provide financial education beginning in elementary school, teaching them how to save, budget and use credit wisely. These life skills, once learned and mastered, contribute to a lifelong cycle of success and financial independence.

By bringing companies, donors, volunteers and agencies together around innovative solutions, we change the lives of one in four people living in southern Nevada.
