Simply put, United Way of Rockingham County brings together Local People to help raise Local Dollars to meet Local Needs.  To do this, they set Local Community Goals and Raise and Invest Funds in Local Programs and Services that are Monitored and Evaluated by Local People.

We are an independent non-profit organization that works through community partnerships to: help our students be successful in school, make sure basic needs are met, keep our community safe and healthy, and ensure independence and dignity for our elderly.

The programs funded through the United Way of Rockingham County generate sustained impact in our community focusing on Education, Financial Stability and Health & Safety. Programs are monitored and evaluated by a committee of local community members to ensure that donor’s dollars are making a positive impact.
