The Franklin-Grand Isle United Way is a community-based organization mobilizing local businesses and individuals to engage at the local level addressing issues, strategies and actions for solutions to ensure a high quality of life.
To advance the common good and mobilize the caring power of communities, we will:
- Ignite a social movement, and thereby mobilize community members to action — to give, advocate and volunteer to improve the conditions in which they live.
- Galvanize and connect all sectors of society — individuals, businesses, non-profit organizations and governments — to create long-term social change that produces healthy, well-educated and financially-stable individuals and families.
- Raise, invest and leverage hundreds of thousands of dollars annually in philanthropic con tributions to create and support innovative programs and approaches to generate sustained impact in local communities.
- Hold ourselves accountable to this cause through our steadfast commitment to continually measure — in real terms — improvements in education, income and health.
