ABOUT US

UWFC_LOGO__

United Way of Fresno County (UWFC) brings resources together to address the most urgent issues the community faces. Through unique partnerships and approaches, UWFC mobilizes resources beyond the dollars that are pledged through their fund-raising efforts. Community partners often include schools, government policy makers, businesses, organized labor, financial institutions, voluntary and neighborhood associations, community development corporations, and the faith community.

 OUR VISION

 

Our vision is that all families will have access to a quality education that leads to a good job with enough income to support a family through retirement; and that families will have access to heal resources. These are the building blocks to a good life in Fresno County: Education, Income and Health. 

 

 OUR MISSION

 

Our mission is to improve the quality of life in our communities.

 HISTORY OF UNITED WAY OF FRESNO COUNTY

 

Since 1923, UWFC has been at the heart of a great and caring community. In the fertile, sun-drenched Great Central Valley between the Sierras and the Pacific Ocean, Fresno County has the largest agriculture economy of any county in the nation. But intertwined with its rich abundance and rich heritage of cultures from around the world, Fresno County also has one of the highest poverty and unemployment levels in the nation.

 

The people of Fresno County value healthy families, religious faith, hard work, education, entrepreneurial creativity and collaborating for the common good. At the heart of this caring community, UWFC helps a wide range of nonprofit organizations and institutions meet real human needs, from most basic physical requirements of food, clothing, and shelter, to the most lofty reaches of mind and spirit in the arts.

 

You probably know UWFC best for our role in supporting a large network of local nonprofit agencies. We have a proud history of providing a convenient way for employees to give back and to help the Fresno community in need. However, the problems facing Fresno today demand a more strategic approach to charity and donors are demanding more accountability for their contributions.

 OUR ROLE IN THE COMMUNITY

 

UWFC is a catalyst of change to the community of Fresno County. We strive to improve communities by helping define and raise human and financial resources to achieve desired outcomes.

 OUR IMPACT TO THE COMMUNITY

 

UWFC multiplies your gift for maximum IMPACT to build a healthier community. You care about your neighbors and our whole community, but the challenges can feel overwhelming. When you give to UWFC, we combine your gift with thousands of other contributions to maximize the IMPACT of your caring generosity and bring significant change to the people of our community.
