For almost 90 years, River Region United Way has partnered with individuals, companies, organizations, foundations and area health & human service providers to advance the common good in our five-county River Region. We are grateful to all our supporters who so generously give of their time, talents and resources.

In its daily operations, River Region United Way will unite volunteers, contributors and community organizations to address the causes of issues identified in regularly conducted needs assessments.  


Our service area includes Autauga, Elmore, Lowndes, Macon and Montgomery counties. 


Building Better Communities

The presence of United Way is felt throughout the River Region in many ways.


As a Leader...
We are at the forefront in building a stronger, healthier, more compassionate River Region... community by community.

As a Neighbor...
Our strength comes from our local presence and intimate understanding of our communities.

As a Change-agent...
We really get the job done by changing lives for the better. We measure ourselves by the results we achieve.

As a Partner...
We believe in teamwork, bringing together donors and volunteers with community leaders and agencies, to address our community’s needs. A community of connected individuals, all people, united and working together for the benefit of all, is at the heart of what the River Region United Way represents.

We invite you to be a part of the change. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer. That's what it means to LIVE UNITED.
