The mission of United Way of Greater Mercer County (UWGMC) is to propel individuals and families to reach their fullest potential especially those who have been traditionally under-served or marginalized, creating a thriving community. We carry out our mission by implementing sustainable programs that use evidence-based best practices and deliver measurable outcomes. 

UWGMC is focused on strengthening struggling families, local non-profits whose missions align with ours, and the community in which we serve. Our objective is to operate with an equitable lens while filling community gaps. Our direct service work centers on disrupting poverty in three areas: education, economic security and dignity, and overall health & wellness.
