Get Involved

United Way fights for the basic needs, education and financial stability of every person in Central Kentucky. Our goals are clear, ambitious and attainable - but only with your support. Are you ready to join the fight?


Your contribution will empower everyone in Central Kentucky to live their best lives and build stronger communities:  Access to basic needs, a quality education that leads to a stable job  and enough income to support a family through retirement.


Real, sustainable community improvement requires changes and action. United Way of the Bluegrass is not about politics; it's about understanding our greatest challenges and coming together to solve them.

Join the cause. Make your voice heard.  Policy change can be big or small. It can be petitioning your school board to require healthier cafeteria meals. It can be urging your government to invest more in schools, or make child tax credits permanent, or make more children eligible for preschool or health insurance. Or it can be mobilizing your contacts to speak out on a critical cause, in person or online.

United Way galvanizes people to speak out for change, because your voice matters.  We're amplifying individuals’ voices on important community issues. We provide a platform for people to unite and take meaningful action that makes a difference.


Each of us has special talents. Things we can do to help. Put your time, talents and treasures to work for your community.
