United Way Committees and Coalitions

Committees and Coalitions

By joining a United Way coalition or committee, you can use your time, talent and voice to make a difference in your community.

Using the Collective Impact model, United Way of the Greater Lehigh Valley is making a long-term investment in deep and meaningful change around large-scale, complex social issues. To achieve population level goals and lasting results, Collective Impact partners must come together to solve a common goal from multiple angles with one organization serving as the“backbone” or lead convenor.

“United Way assures us that our contribution makes a purposeful impact. The flexibility to direct dollars to causes important to our family is influential to our giving.”
