United Way envisions a world where every individual has an opportunity to succeed, and entire communities thrive as a result. Here in Tennessee we're getting a little closer everyday, with help from thousands of people from around the state.

Our work is fueled by the passion of volunteers and donors who give their time, their money and their voice to improve the lives of others.

Every day, our volunteers, donors and advocates are making a lasting difference in so many ways. That can mean helping a child learn to read, donating money to make sure people have access to quality medical care,speaking out in support of policies that provide training for in-demand jobs and so much more.

We focus on education, financial stability, and health,the building blocks for a good life and a strong community. See how we make it all happen.
