United Way is the world’s largest, privately funded nonprofit—serving communities for more than 130 years. United Way is in 1,800 communities across the globe fighting for the education, health, and financial stability of every person in every community. They build stronger communities by working in the areas of early childhood and youth success, economic mobility, and access to health to improve people’s lives.United Way studies the local community, prioritizes the challenges, and then tackles the toughest problems—from the child who can’t read, to the families who can’t make ends meet, fighting for the hungry, the homeless, the sick. But they can’t do it alone. Rallying together corporate partners, volunteer, and donors like YOU, United Way is creating innovative solutions and driving results.
