Our Mission

Heart of Kentucky United Way mission is to mobilize people to give, advocate, and volunteer, creating opportunities for a good life for all.

Our Goals

Change does not happen because of the actions of one organization or one program. Change happens when we work toward Collective Impact. Collective Impact is working together while focusing on specific goals, measurements, and outcomes to create real and lasting change. As social issues grow more severe and complex, Heart of Kentucky United Way pledges to serve as the catalyst that unites the resources, people, talent, knowledge, and finances to address our communities critical needs.

Heart of Kentucky United Way serves Boyle, Garrard, Lincoln, and Mercer Counties.
