About Us

United Way of Southeast Alaska is an independently governed, non-profit organization dedicated to strengthening lives, helping people and improving community conditions throughout Southeast Alaska. With the help of our 33 partner agencies, UWSEAK works to create real, lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of problems within our communities. We support programs and initiatives that help those in need and also prevent problems from happening in the first place.

Mission: United Way collaborates with communities and agencies across Southeast Alaska to strengthen and improve the Health, Education and Financial Stability of all individuals.

Vision: United Way of Southeast Alaska envisions a region where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.

Core Values: Impact and commitment to community success, volunteerism, inclusiveness, equity, diversity, integrity, accountability, respect for all, trust, highest ethics and fiscally responsible innovation.

At United Way of Southeast Alaska, we believe that everyone should have the opportunities for a good life. We believe everyone deserves a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. That's why our work is focused on the building blocks for a good life:

  • Education: Helping children and youth achieve their potential
  • Income: Promoting financial stability and independence
  • Health: Improving the health of individuals, families and communities

Advancing the common good is about helping one person at a time and about changing systems to help all of us. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable and when people are healthy.

United Way of Southeast Alaska invites you to LIVE UNITED with us - to get involved by giving, advocating and volunteering for the causes and issues that you care about and want to help improve. It takes all of us working together to create a brighter future. When you reach out a hand to one, you can influence the condition of all. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.
