Imagine your favorite organizations and you all working together

Metro United Way not only helps to fund our area’s charitable organizations, we also work with government agencies and the community at-large, supporting them all with data, matching volunteers with volunteer opportunities, and mobilizing resources when and where they're needed. Like an orchestra’s conductor, we ensure we’re all playing the same tune.

to LIVE UNITED is a way of life

At Metro United Way we LIVE UNITED every day to address our communities’ biggest needs, but we can’t do it alone. Because change doesn’t happen alone. To live better, we must LIVE UNITED.
