United Way of Delaware's (UWDE) mission is to maximize the community's resources to improve the quality of life for all Delawareans. UWDE envisions a community where everyone has an opportunity to achieve his or her potential. The core of the three strategic priorities ensure that (1) Delaware children are reading on grade level and prepared to succeed in school; (2) Delaware's young people are prepared for college and/or workforce success when they graduate from high school; and (3) Delaware families are financially stable and positioned to thrive. UWDE exists to accelerate and amplify the individual impact of our donors, agency partners, and community stakeholders. We create impact that is broader and greater than the sum of its parts. We address issues in our Promise Communities across a continuum from birth to adulthood which provides a broad perspective that engages UWDE in multigenerational initiatives that drive short-term improvements and long-term cultural shifts.
