How Can I Help?



Through our knowledge of community issues, community solutions, and key public policy issues, we assist our donors in making effective philanthropic decisions. We partner with community organizations, state & municipal governments, and businesses to improve social conditions in our region. We provide resources to address community conditions through volunteers, financial, and in-kind support.

We provide our partners access to the knowledge, lessons learned, and capacity of the national network of United Ways, providing the entire region a vehicle to ensure your philanthropic dollars are focused in a strategic and effective manner.

Invest in our community's future with the Community Fund

Our Community Fund is the backbone of our strategy for change: preparing children to achieve in school and life, building self-sufficiency for adults and families, helping people find the information and social programs they need, and staying ready to help our community when disaster strikes.

Our expertise and network of relationships in the private and public sectors, innovative spirit, and hundred years of experience informing our approach make the United Way Community Fund your most effective means of creating a difference in the community.

Gifts to the Community Fund enable us to:

  • Identify and support the best performing health & human service agencies
  • Improve the quality of social service programs through training and expert assistance
  • Mobilize volunteers through our innovative volunteer portal
  • Convene the community to respond productively to the challenges facing our region
  • Advocate for sensible and humane public policies that equip children, adults, families, and neighborhoods with the tools they need to succeed
  • Multiply the impact of individual donations by leveraging them to attract corporate and foundation dollars
