Who We Are

You are here

When you invest your time, or money, in the work of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, you are fighting for the education, financial stability and health of everyone in our community. 

  • You are saying yes to kids getting a strong start in life and staying on a path to high school graduation. 
  • You are saying yes to people achieving their dreams 
  • You are saying yes to the health and wellbeing of our neighbors.
  • And by saying YES, you are helping anchor these opportunities and more in communities across Buncombe County. 
No matter the size of your gift, or the amount of time you have to volunteer, you are helping build a network of support that unites people, improves lives and strengthens our community. 
Join us in saying Yes. United, We Win. 


Welcome, Community Members

As President and CEO of United Way of Asheville and Buncombe County, I must say I am proud of the partnerships that we build right here in Buncombe County; partnerships with our schools, nonprofits, local businesses and with people just like you.

We've got an incredible team here at United Way and their dedication to excellence is inspiring to me. I’m also honored by the way our volunteers meet us in this work, with equal amounts of passion and compassion. What a fortunate vantage point I have, to see these forces coming together for good.

We hope you will join us! Please feel free to call me, or our staff, directly if you ever have any questions.
