Our Mission at United Way of Southern Chautauqua County is to mobilize the community to help every person and family to improve their lives.
To Do This We Will
- Ignite a community-wide social movement, and thereby mobilize thousands to action – to volunteer, advocate and give to improve the conditions in which we live.
- Motivate and connect all sectors of our community – individuals, businesses, nonprofit organizations, and government – to create long-term social change that produces well-educated, financially stable and healthy individuals and families.
- Raise, invest and leverage $1.45 million annually in philanthropic contributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained community impact.
- Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure – in real terms – improvement in Academic Success, Health & Independence, a Ready Workforce, and Self Sufficiency.
