Connecting the Community

For almost 100 years  United Way of Pioneer Valley has served as our community’s fundraiser. But UWPV doesn’t just raise money; today’s United Way is a focused, results-driven system that works year-round to change community conditions and create lasting solutions. Through strong partnerships with volunteers, local businesses, government and nonprofit organizations, United Way accomplishes what no one can do alone.
