Individual Giving

United Way enjoys the support of more than 20,000 individual donors who give through the workplace, donate through the mail and contribute online. We are grateful to these individuals who are helping United Way advance the common good and create more opportunities for more people across the Capital Region. United Way turns the power of one into the power of many so we can fulfill our mission to

  • Make sure people can meet their BASIC NEEDS for food shelter and safety.
  • Help our most-vulnerable children gain a quality EDUCATION.
  • Help working families who are walking a financial tightrope increase their INCOME to achieve financial stability.
  • Help individuals of all ages and life stages gain and maintain good HEALTH.

You can accomplish the greatest good and help the most people, with a single gift, by investing in United Way's Community Care Fund. Community Care dollars are invested in all of United Way's initiatives and funded programs to help those who need it most in ways that achieve the greatest impact.
