These goals are ambitious, but with your help, with committed partners, and public engagement — we can achieve them.

Our Commitment to Diversity

United Way of Orange County advocates and promotes diversity among its board, staff, agencies, volunteers, programs, services, donors, and partners. We define diversity as valuing individuals without regard to race, color, religion, creed, age, gender, sexual orientation, national origin or ancestry, marital status, veteran status or disability.   We welcome that every person brings a unique perspective and experience to advance our mission and progress our fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.  United Way of Orange County will maintain an organizational environment that enables all people to perform to their potential by actively valuing different backgrounds and perspectives, fostering teamwork and collaboration among members of the community, and maximizing contributions to United Way of Orange County by using the skills, talents and resources of all members of our community. Our goal is to have our Board of Directors, staff and volunteers genuinely demonstrate the principles of diversity, which enrich our community.
