Make A Difference With Our Community Campaign!

United Way connects those in need to those who can help. The Community Fund Campaign is at the heart of our work.

You + Local Nonprofit Partners = United Community

Here's why:

  • You. When you give to the Community Campaign, your donation is combined with thousands of other donors, funding over 80 programs that have a direct impact on the health, education, and financial stability of so many in our neighborhoods.
  • Local Nonprofit Partners. United Way knows the nonprofit agencies who are doing the hard work every single day, offering support to those who may be struggling. Your donation directly supports this work.
  • United Community. The solutions we create together go beyond short-term fixes. We are creating lasting change.

The Impact

Every day, our donors, advocates, and volunteers are making a lasting difference in so many ways. We measure our success in lives changed. And during these challenging times, we still did some amazing things. And we did it together.

Last year we served over 114,000 individuals & their families:

  • 21,088 families connected to educational programs
    • Over 5,000 students enrolled in mentorship & leadership development programs
  • 35,274 families connected to financial stability programs
    • 180 families found permanent housing
  • Over 5,200 families with increased food stability
