Who We Are

Every day, we meet people who inspire us, humble us, and lift us up.

The Cape and Islands United Way is built on the belief that together we can accomplish more than any individual or organization can do alone. We are all part of a powerful movement that is aimed at changing lives.

Our overarching goal is to support and help create safe, diverse and viable local communities in which individuals and families thrive.

In an ongoing effort to redistribute the maximum amount of dollars back into the community, we strive to manage our operations as efficiently as possible, maintain a small staff, and rely on volunteer support. Last year, our overhead was 19%, well below the Better Business Bureau’s recommendation of up to 35% and below the United Way recommended standard of 25%.
