About Us

Our Mission:

The mission of the Louisiana Association of United Ways is to integrate action and resources for the common good.


The Louisiana Association of United Ways (LAUW) is an association of eight regional United Ways serving 52 parishes throughout Louisiana. Together we work across our communities to tackle common challenges that affect our local communities but are bigger than any of us — challenges our entire state faces.

LAUW is connected with 22 other state United Way associations. Together we are part of a global network of more than 1,800 United Ways, servicing communities in 41 countries.
