Dedicated to the idea that we can get more done together

For more than 100 years, Metro United Way has been improving lives and our community, which includes Jefferson, Bullitt, Oldham, and Shelby counties in Kentucky and Clark, Floyd, and Harrison counties in Indiana. We are uniquely positioned to harness the power of donors, volunteers, thought leaders, experts, other nonprofits, and government at all levels to ensure positive, sustainable change for every person in our seven-county region. Now more than ever, we are focused on three priorities: thriving kids, strong households, and an equitable community.

  • Our Mission

    To improve lives and our community by engaging people to give, advocate, and volunteer.

  • Our Vision

    A community whose people achieve their fullest potential through education, financial stability, and healthy lives.


  • Our vision and mission reflect our fundamental belief that all people belong and deserve fairness, justice, and inclusivity.

  • Our strength comes from our diversity, and we celebrate the visible and invisible qualities that make each person unique, including, race, gender, age, sexuality, ability, religion, national origin, gender identity, and other identities.

  • We commit to aligning our culture and business practices to be a beacon of diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and belonging for all people.
