We are the Uniters. We bring people together to solve problems.

We identify the most pressing issues in Addison County and we bring together the people we think can solve them. United Way funds agencies that, working together, can address the nuances of complex problems like poverty, homelessness, lack of affordable high-quality childcare, domestic violence, isolation, substance use disorder, and a disengaged workforce. We find solutions to fill unmet needs. We deploy volunteers as the feet on the street, delivering hope to people in need. We raise funding through generous donors who understand that social change can’t happen without it.

"LIVE UNITED" Volunteer Scholarship

United Way of Addison County fosters community service in all community members, but especially in our youth. In that spirit, we will be honoring class of 2020 Addison County students at their awards nights. The purpose of this scholarship is to recognize high school seniors who volunteer in their community who are interested in advancing their education.



Join us for a non-profit seminar on fundraising and financial stability. Participants will learn how to find new donors, retain the ones you already have, keep your donors engaged all year long, and bring lapsed donors back into the fold. Everyone will leave with the tools to begin building a goal-driven fundraising plan for their own organization.

ELAC Lunch and Learn with Addison Allies

Addison Allies Network (AAN) is a group of volunteers building a stronger, more diverse, and inclusive community by teaching English, providing needed services, and hosting social opportunities to migrant farmworkers living in Addison County. Join us in March when we hear from AAN Founder, Veronica Ciambra.

Financial Reality Fair

ACWA is hosting Addison County's first Financial Reality Fairs in partnership with our local high schools and other community partners. Participating teens will identify a career, receive a starting salary, complete a budget, and then determine how to live within their monthly salaray while paying for basics such as housing, utilities, transportation, food, and more.
