United Way of the Greater Triangle is moving beyond its traditional role of simply being a fundraiser to being a funder, partner, convener, and catalyst for positive, lasting community change within the four counties we serve—Durham, Johnston, Orange, and Wake.

Our work with a network of nonprofits, businesses, government and community leaders builds resources, focuses investments, and fosters partnerships to address basic needs and improve early learning, health and well-being, educational equity, financial stability, and economic security for families and their children in low income households.

This new organizational focus on a two-generational approach uses collaborative efforts to begin actively mobilizes the caring power of communities to improve lives and transform communities, inspiring generations of achievement. Through the United Way of the Greater Triangle, you can invest in 24 collaboratives who are working toward long-term outcomes to help families and children in our community.

Our Community Action Plan includes:

Changing Generations: Pathways to Progress for Families and Children: A two-generational approach of supporting and building collaborative work that will help create, scale and sustain solutions that foster self-determination and generational success for adults and their children together.

Meeting Immediate Basic Needs: Continued support for our most vulnerable populations in accessing their basic needs of healthcare, housing, and safety. This component includes an initiative focused on building a food-secure community for all with an emphasis on ending childhood hunger.
