United Way goes beyond temporary fixes to create lasting change in communities around the world. By bringing people and organizations together around innovative solutions, we impact millions of lives every year.

United Way of Carbon County was formed in 1969, incorporated in 1985 and received 501c 3 status in 1990.

We are currently led by a seven member Board of Directors who meet monthly with the Executive Director. Agency meetings are quarterly.


Our Mission

The desire of United Way of Carbon County is to provide a

financial campaign for the benefit of non-profit, voluntary, local and

national benevolent, charitable, health and welfare organizations and to

provide a fair and equitable method for the allocation of funds to affiliated

agency members.

The measure of society is found in how they treat their weakest and most helpless citizens.
— Jimmy Carter, Former US President
