United Way of Mason County is committed to creating long-lasting change by addressing the underlying causes of our community’s most critical issues – children succeeding, individuals and families becoming financially stable and people living a healthy lifestyle.  When we put all three of these pieces together, we create the foundation of opportunity for everyone in our community.  A quality education is essential for a child to be successful.  An income that covers today’s necessities and provides savings for the future will help families become financially stable.  A healthy lifestyle leads people to be more productive citizens.

We believe that this can be best achieved through a coordinated effort of many players – business, non-profit organizations, government, educational institutions and the faith-based community.  It’s the idea that we can achieve more together than any one organization can on its own.
