IndustryGrantmaking Foundations
Description

The United Way network contains 1,800 independent and autonomous organizations located in approximately 40 countries. Each United Way sets its own priorities. Generally speaking, United Ways envision a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives. To that end, some UWs focus more heavily on education, some on financial stability, and some on health. All local United Ways are independent organizations with their own CEOs, boards, strategic plans, salary structures, benefit packages, and workplace culture. Some are small, some are large. Some are unionized, some are not. However, Glass Door requires all UWs to be aggregated in one profile.This is the preference of Glass Door, not of the UW network. When reading reviews, please remember that what is true of one United Way may not be true of another and what is true of the umbrella organization, United Way Worldwide, may not be true of local organizations.
