Diverse and vibrant neighborhoods are why so many are proud to call the Chicago region “home,” but many of our neighbors and our neighborhoods are hurting. United Way is committed to working alongside community-based organizations to help rebuild and heal our city and our region – creating a more just and equitable society.

By joining a United Way affinity group or giving society, you’re making a commitment to your community. You’re stepping forward as a leader and joining forces with other like-minded philanthropists to fight for change across the region.

Young Leaders United (YLU) members support United Way by annually giving $250 or more. To register as a member of YLU, please complete and submit your donation below.
