Greater Gallatin United Way Takes A Collective Approach to Community Problem Solving

We believe that no problem is so big that we can’t solve it together, but it takes all of us: fundraisers, hand raisers, change makers, partners, and YOU to create lasting change.

Greater Gallatin United Way's mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our communities.

No one organization alone in isolation can solve complex community problems. The only way we can create real, lasting change is by innovating the way people, organizations, and systems work together.  As a leader in collective impact-driven work, Greater Gallatin United Way addresses the human service needs of Gallatin, Madison, Meagher and Park Counties.  We are part of a network of 1,800 United Ways in 41 countries and territories.  Strategically we mobilize people from a wide and diverse variety of community sectors to:

  1. Identify priority needs around health, education, and income
  2. Secure resources through an annual campaign, grants, and other avenues
  3. Invest in and implement solutions through community initiatives, grants, and advocacy

Our work is based on 3 core values.   

  1. Do things that matter.
  2. Operate well.
  3. Grow resources and relationships.

Collective Impact requires that everyone work together in partnership – businesses, cities, government, schools, churches, foundations, and nonprofit organizations – to tackle our most pressing challenges and develop lasting solutions. By working this way, we all move towards the same clear goals.  Our work in 4 Community Impact Areas address Health, Education and Financial Stability so that every person in the communities we serve has the opportunity to live a better life.
