United Way fights for the health, education and economic well-being of every person in every community

From the investments we make in social innovations that advance measurable change, to the support of urban gardens and community-managed farms, United Way of the Greater Capital Region (UWGCR) is developing real solutions to improve our communities across the eight counties we serve, including this year’s expansion into Montgomery County. 

We continue to prove the best way to move the needle is through collaboration.
