About Us

United Way of Albany County Inc

United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.

The United Way of Albany County values and embraces diversity. We believe in and support equal opportunity for all people regardless of their race, gender, color, religion, ethnic origin, marital status, sexual orientation, physical challenge or age. Our financial support for the community is a reflection of this belief.

Our commitment is that all UWAC staff and volunteers will be sensitive to and respectful of the diverse people who comprise the communities we serve. We strive to have both staff and volunteers who reflect the diversity of the community, and we believe in building on the ideas and perspectives of diverse people.

United Way of Albany County is a volunteer-based non-profit organization that raises and distributes funds to 17 participating agencies in the Laramie area.

When United Way of Albany County was established, it was a vision of the future – a future dedicated to improving the quality of life for all. United Way volunteers have been building on that vision for six decades.

Today, the many changes taking place in our community have created heightened social problems. United Way is positioned to respond to these problems. Through community-wide human service planning and direct support of agencies, United Way is answering the expanded needs for children, poor, elderly, disadvantaged, abused, disabled and discouraged.

It is our goal to help the people of Albany County achieve satisfactory fulfillment and to increase the organized capacity of people to care for one another.

Volunteer your time today, or donate to our campaign and help us to accomplish our goal of $500,000 this year!
