United Way's Impact

Our community's most stubborn problems are too large and complex for any one individual or organization to solve alone. But united, we can make a difference for today and for generations. United Way raises funds and brings organizations together to tackle the complex roots of conditions such as hunger, academic failure, job readiness, poverty, homelessness, domestic violence and the challenges our seniors face. These are the issues that have the greatest bearing on our region's social wellbeing and economic health.

Changing lives & communities

Our work is personal enough to change individual lives and powerful enough to improve conditions across our community. United Way donors are able to address multiple social issues with one easy contribution. At the same time, United Way partner agencies are better equipped to advance their mission and help more people in more-meaningful ways. 

Focused on the building blocks for a good life

We are committed to drive lasting, positive change in priority issues within the areas of Basic Needs, Education, Income and Health. These are the building blocks for a good life and the cornerstones of a strong community. When you contribute to United Way of the Greater Capital Region, you make one of the most powerful philanthropic investments possible ... one that is magnified and multiplied, letting you create deeper and more-lasting impact than you could accomplish by making a single donation to a specific cause.
