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.


The Cape and Islands United Way leads social impact in the region.  Partnering with donors, volunteers, and nonprofit organizations, we unite to improve lives and build stronger communities on Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard, and Nantucket.

Our overarching goals are to help our community become:

  • Strong, resilient and healthy

  • Successful in school

  • Economically stable

  • Safely housed


Together — with our donors, volunteers, and partners — we foster local communities where children succeed, families are financially stable, residents are healthy, and there is safe and affordable housing for everyone.
