Why United Way?

United Way is committed to standing with our communities and supporting those impacted by the COVD-19 outbreak in their time of need. Together, we will overcome this pandemic by making sure the most vulnerable among us are protected.

It’s not a new role for us.

While people are calling COVID-19 the biggest community mobilization challenge facing America since World War II, it’s worth noting that United Way was part of that historic effort.

  • Before we were United Way, we were Community Chests; and Community Chests grew out of War Chests organized as community mobilization efforts in response to WWI.  This is who we are and what we do.
  • United Way is uniquely well positioned to understand and lead community mobilization. We’ve been responding to society’s most pressing problems for more than 130 years, and we’re up for the challenge.
