United Way of the Wine Country has been dedicated to improving lives locally since incorporation on February 26, 1968. For almost 50 years, we have been deeply committed to achieving lasting solutions – not just quick fixes – for our entire community.
Everyone deserves a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. To create lasting change United Way focuses on solving the underlying causes of common problems in education, income and health.
The mission of United Way of the Wine Country is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community through leadership, community engagement and effective investment.
United Way of the Wine Country envisions an educated community where all people live healthy, productive lives and can contribute to the well-being of our communities.
United Way of the Wine Country is a vital link between residents, nonprofit organizations, businesses and government leaders in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, Humboldt and Del Norte counties. Our goal is to advance the common good by focusing on what matters most in education, financial stability, and health. Working together, we are strengthening our communities by raising funds, advocating for programs that help people in need, and increasing volunteerism.
