About United Way of San Diego County

United Way Strengthens San Diego Communities

United Way of San Diego County has stayed vital to this community since 1920 for good reason: we know how to put the right people together with the right resources to make the right things happen. Right now, our ultimate focus is to help San Diego’s children and families grow stronger. Today's United Way is bringing people, organizations and communities together around a common cause, a common vision, and a common path forward.

Our Vision: United Way envisions a vibrant community built on opportunity for everyone.

Our Mission: To spark breakthrough community action that elevates every child and family toward a brighter future.
What Does United Way do?

We work to change the odds for every child, through quality education.

Using a collective impact approach – unifying the resources of dozens of local partners – we’ve been able to improve the lives of children and their families across the region. This cross-sector collaborative approach takes all of us, from all walks of life, working together to be a part of local solutions.
