About Us

United Way of Albany County Inc

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

United Way of Albany County is a volunteer-based non-profit organization that raises and distributes funds to 16 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 2016 campaign and help us to accomplish our goal of $450,000 this year!
