United Way of Central New Mexico works to inspire donors and businesses to invest in our community and partner with nonprofits to mobilize resources and channel them where they are most needed.

With the help of community collaboration from many different sectors, UWCNM has developed specific programs to address these needs. Our focused approach will create a stronger impact in Family Stability and Education, while still funding Basic Needs.


Our vision is to create supportive communities where people live healthy and productive lives.


Our mission is to bring people and resources together to measurably improve lives and strengthen our communities.
