United Way Worldwide

United Way Worldwide Vision

United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

Imagine a world that fosters hope and opportunity for everyone…

  • Where all children receive a quality education that offers a pathway to a brighter tomorrow
  • Where the cycle of poverty and financial dependence ends, and productive livelihoods begin for even the most disadvantaged
  • Where everyone receives effective health care that improves quality of life
  • Where communities not only set significant and measurable goals to advance these fundamental elements of human development, but achieve them


United Way Worldwide Mission

To improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

To do this we will:

  • Ignite a worldwide social movement, and thereby mobilize millions to action – to give, advocate and volunteer to improve the conditions in which they live
  • Galvanize and connect all sector of society – individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments – to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families
  • Raise,  invest and leverage billions of funds annually in philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained impact in local communities
  • Hold  ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure – in real terms – improvement in education, income and  health


Our new website is nearly complete

We are very excited to begin our 2012 campaign with a brand new website design, complete with full social media integration, by AJS Productions.  In the coming weeks we will be putting the final touches on our new online presence and will be able to provide updates to all of our followers on Facebook, Twitter, and our new blog page.  All of these updates will also be reflected on our website as well.

You will likely see small tweaks and changes to the site during these next few weeks, however we wanted to get it out there for our board members to see and share with their employees.  Even with the new site, our mission remains the same.  United Way of Bartow County seeks to provide adequate funding and guidance for member agencies to:

  1. Provide for immediate needs of those in crisis situations,
  2. Meet long-term needs through the educational, emotional and moral guidance of children,
  3. Enable financially or physically disabled people to become self-supporting.

We hope you will think about inviting the United Way of Bartow County to your place of business this year so we can show your employees how easy it is to set up a payroll deduction program and where all of their donations go.  Our partner agencies are all non-profits right here in Bartow County and any donations ear-marked for Bartow will stay in Bartow.

Feel free to contact us anytime with any questions you have or to invite us to come by and meet you in person.
