We can change the world by working together.
United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person because poverty, mental illness, illiteracy, isolation and abuse are not distant issues. They exist right here.
In early 2017, Greater Gallatin United Way and the Board of Directors began updating the strategic plan. We identified the following 4 Community Impact Areas as priority needs for Gallatin, Madison, Meagher and Park Counties. We believe that we can make real positive impact by working together towards a common goal. We thank every individual, non-profit, business, foundation, faith-based institution, school district, and governement entity that has stepped up to the plate to work work together and make these community goals achievable!
