Our Programs

United Way works every day to advance the common good by focusing on the building blocks for a better life.

 

Education

We all benefit when a child succeeds in school and goes on to become successful as an adult.

United Way of Mat-Su supports education, school readiness, youth development, early childhood education, and family engagement throughout the Valley.
 

Health

A community is only as healthy and resilient as each of its individual members! Click below to see how UWMS is working to advance strong communities and access to healthcare for all.

Financial Stability

We strive to increase awareness of and access to employment and financial literacy resources, skills development, trainings, and programs that allow all Valley residents to achieve solid footing in their personal and family finances.

Grantees

We are honored to distribute grants annually to local agencies advancing the core values of our mission. For a complete list of this year’s grantees, and eligibility requirements, click below.
