Do things that matter.  Operate well.  Grow resources and relationships.

Founded in 1978, our mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our communities.  Greater Gallatin United Way's (GGUW) work focuses on the building blocks for a better life  - - health, education and financial stability for those living and working in Gallatin, Madison, Meagher, Park Counties.  We go beyond single-issue solutions and temporary fixes and tackle root causes to impact thousands of lives every year and create lasting positive change that improves the quality of life for everyone. GGUW mobilizes people from a wide and diverse variety of community sectors to:

  • identify priority needs around health, education, and financial stability;
  • secure resources through an annual campaign, grants, and other resources; and,
  • invest and implement solutions through community initiatives, grants, and advocacy.

This results in a community united to create better opportunities for all.
