Partner Agencies

Greater Mankato Area United Way's mission is to unite the community to secure and invest resources to improve people's lives.

To fulfill our mission, we support nonprofit partner agencies to keep our region strong and balanced through the pillars of basic needs, health and education. All programs are vetted annually through our review process. Each year, our United Way programs serve more than 65,000 people throughout Blue Earth, Le Sueur, Nicollet and Waseca counties.
