ways to give



We all win when a child succeeds in school, when workers have solid jobs, when families have good health, and when a neighborhood is revitalized. When you give to United Way’s Community Fund, you are joining with others across our 15-town community to strengthen the foundation for a good quality of life including strong education, financial stability and good health. Together, we can ensure that every person and every home is healthy and strong. It takes an entire community to make a difference, and we need you.

United Way of Western Connecticut helps over 75,000 people, funds more than 110 LOCAL programs, partners with more than 70 agencies and supports dozens of community initiatives. By leveraging the collective power of the community, we are delivering immediate assistance to lives in crisis while working toward long-term solutions that will prevent problems from happening in the first place. We invite you to LIVE UNITED by generously supporting our annual campaign to ensure everyone has access to education, job training, food, housing and healthcare.
