Update on United Way of Northwest Vermont

Jesse Bridges runs Vermont's largest United Way that serves northwest Vermont: United Way of Northwest Vermont

Our mission is to build a stronger Northwest Vermont by mobilizing our community to improve people’s lives. United Way isn't just our name – it's how we work. We bring together individuals, nonprofits, businesses, and government entities to fight for a strong, vibrant, and healthy community. We fight for the education, financial stability and health of every person in Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle counties.

We operate autonomously, make decisions locally and are governed by Board Members from our community. As a member of the United Way network, we pay dues to United Way Worldwide for which we receive benefits including training, support, and the ability to draw on ideas and best practices from United Ways throughout the country.
