"What United Ways do well is recruit people with passion, expertise and resources to make a difference. But that's not enough. We should aspire to drive collaborative community change. That means we – and our partners– must facilitate a shared community vision and coordinated action across a diverse coalition, along with mutual accountability, sustained effort and measured results. It means working collaboratively on community-wide and community-based strategies that can drive real change – not programs, or tweaks of status quo. And it means bringing people from all walks of life together to work in meaningful ways – not just giving, but also advocating and volunteering – to advance these community strategies. We should spark new ways of working, even if we aren't always in the forefront."

- Brian Gallagher, President and CEO of United Way Worldwide
