At United Way, we believe every person in every neighborhood should have equal access to quality healthcare, education, employment opportunities and a safety net of basic needs. We’re committed to seeing every neighborhood become a place where individuals and families can thrive. But we need your help to meet this goal. United, we can create stronger neighborhoods for a stronger Chicago region.
Making a long term impact is difficult to do alone. That’s why we believe driving change is more effective, and more fun, when we do it together. Join an affinity group or a giving society to increase your impact and grow your leadership alongside others who share your passion for our community. Through volunteering, fundraising and networking, these diverse groups are fighting for a stronger Chicago.
Local businesses fuel our economy and our city. Enhance your company’s impact and highlight your commitment to Chicago by aligning your corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals with United Way. We offer a variety of opportunities for your company to join us in unleashing the potential of greater Chicago.
