Mission Statement

United Way of 1000 Lakes fights for the education, health, and financial stability of everyone in the Itasca area. Through strategic partnerships and collaborative work, we bring the many voices of our community together to find common ground, develop a strategic vision for change and make meaningful progress, while activating individuals and organizations with the opportunity to give, advocate and volunteer to resource this work and change lives across our region.


United Way of 1000 Lakes began in 1963 as the United Fund of Grand Rapids, organized by volunteers to raise money to help more than twenty local charities. Today, United Way of 1000 Lakes has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a community convener which mobilizes local partners including businesses, community leaders, public officials, and residents to develop opportunities for people to succeed. Our focus is on three key building blocks: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family, and good mental and physical health. United Way helps to identify community needs, create solutions, and fund local programs that deliver health and human services directly to the people in our community.
