The United Way of the Tanana Valley had its beginnings in 1956 as the Fairbanks Federated Fund. 1965 witnessed the establishment of the United Good Neighbors and a first year campaign total of $84,655. Seven agencies were part of the original organization: Alaska Crippled Children; American Red Cross; Boy Scouts of America; USO; Fairbanks Health and Safety; the Salvation Army and the Girl Scouts. In 1972, the organization changed its name to the United Way of the Tanana Valley to identify more easily with the United Way movement across the nation. 

Today, United Way of the Tanana Valley has 23 member agencies offering services to assist senior citizens, strengthen families and youth, promote self-sufficiency, improve health and help people with disabilities. Our agencies are divided into the categories of Education, Income and Health to align more with the United Way movement across the world. 

The United Way of the Tanana Valley Leadership Program is made up of a group of our community's most generous donors. United Way of the Tanana Valley ("United Way") has been raising funds for health and human care agencies in our community since 1956. These agencies work to improve lives, whether it's a family who has lost their home due to fire or a child struggling to deal with the trauma of abuse. United Way significantly reduces the time and money these charities spend on fundraising, allowing them to devote more energy to providing services. 

United Way of the Tanana Valley has partnered with Flint Hills Resources – Alaska to bring you Get Connected, a volunteer engagement and management platform that helps nonprofits find and pair volunteers with the right volunteer opportunities.
