Uncommon People United for the Common Good

United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County is about local giving with local impact. We have the vision to make our community—one of the best places on the planet—a better place to live for all of its residents. Asheville and Buncombe County should be a community where all students receive a quality education, the cycle of poverty ends and everyone has access to a healthy lifestyle that improves quality of life.

We’re not alone in our journeys. What happens to our neighbors matters to all of us. Our investment strategies in Education, Income and Health are tailored to drive everyone in our community to success. We know when we act together, joining forces pooling our resources, the sum of our success is greater than any of us could expect to accomplish on our own.
