Our Key Community Values


Community Impact

Individually and collectively, we make a positive difference and a have a measurable impact in each of our island communities.


United Way of San Juan County respects the uniqueness of each of our communities and its local leadership and seeks best practices to meet the differing needs on each island.


It takes whole communities working together to achieve long-term, lasting change and advance the common good. No one can do this alone, and together we can do so much more.


We maintain our integrity and commitment in our relationships to donors, partner agencies, and communities.


We hold ourselves accountable for achieving results with the resources entrusted to us.


We work to show how the generosity of individuals and communities can be a force for positive change at a deep and meaningful level. 


Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of what it means to LIVE UNITED.  To effectively and authentically address our community’s most pressing needs requires an outward and intentional commitment to inclusion across all dimensions (race, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, religion, physical or mental ability, etc.). United Way of San Juan County has made this commitment and continues to address these issues.
