United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador Mission Statement: Hello
"To improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action."
Established in 2004, United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador is the only United Way organization in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
We work to advance the common good and create opportunities for a better life for everyone in our province. Working in partnership with others, we mobilize people and resources to address the root causes of social problems and to change community conditions for the better. United Way supports agencies that provide services to strengthen individuals, families, and communities.
A volunteer board of directors of leading community members governs all United Way decision-making. The Board oversees how donor money is used, shapes our strategic vision and plan, and monitors organizational performance.
The campaign management team is the driving force behind our annual campaign. These business and community leaders meet with colleagues and peers to encourage the participation of their organizations in the United Way campaign. The campaign management team's effort ultimately involves hundreds of volunteers and reaches into workplaces large and small across the province.
