Our Mission


United Way of Pioneer Valley mobilizes people and resources to strengthen our communities.


We envision a thriving, caring region where individuals have opportunities to realize their potential, become economically self-sufficient, and contribute collectively to improve the quality of life in their communities.


Values represent the core priorities in our organization. They determine the way we make decisions and evaluate our progress.

We value:

  • Accountability — Transparency and fairness in all our relationships that instills the highest level of public trust in our effort
  • Creativity — Continuous improvement and innovative approaches to improving community conditions
  • Diversity — The dignity, worth, and uniqueness of every individual
  • Excellence — Providing the highest quality of service to achieve our goals with clear and measurable outcomes
  • Relevance — Clear identification of our value to the community using data driven and community engagement strategies to guide our work

Connecting the Community

For 96 years, United Way of Pioneer Valley has held a reputation as our community’s fundraiser. But United Way doesn’t just raise money; today’s United Way is a focused, results-driven system that works year-round to change community conditions and create lasting solutions. We are impacting our community today and building the foundation for tomorrow. Through strong partnerships with volunteers, local businesses, government and nonprofit organizations, United Way accomplishes what no one can do alone.
