Bold Approach

More than funding individual programs, we are investing in collaborative partnerships. Changing Generations: Pathways to Progress for Families and Children (Changing Generations) is a two-generational approach that addresses the immediate needs of children and their families in vulnerable households while giving them the tools to succeed in the future—more than 80% of our funding supports this collaborative work.

How do We Create Impact?  We Collaborate/Activate/Innovate

Collaborate: United Way invests in 17 collaborative partnerships, made up of more than 50 nonprofits across four counties; UWGT team members are partners at the table, working together, putting families at the center of services.

Activate: From raising awareness of social issues in the Triangle to a range of volunteer opportunities, United Way of the Greater Triangle is mobilizing the caring power of communities.

United Way staff meet with collaborative partner More Than A Roof.

Innovate: Often, the people best suited to create solutions for the community are those who live and work there. United Way has activated community-based solutions with challenges focused on addressing childhood hunger, as well as a college challenge featuring the three HBCUs and a current innovation challenge in Southeast Raleigh.

United Way of the Greater Triangle has a focus on inclusive innovation . . . engaging women and people of color, groups currently underrepresented in the entrepreneurial community.

The move to collaborative partnerships was also innovative – United Way of the Greater Triangle is one of the few United Ways in the nation to shift the majority of its funding to this model.
