About United Way

United Way was founded in 1887(!!) in Virginia. United Way is a worldwide movement active in more than 40 countries and territories. They focus on education, income and health; which they believe to be the most important things for a secure life. United Way mobilizes people to donate and volunteer.

How You Can Help

You can donate (I love how United Way lets you choose where your money goes!) to:

  • A certain country
  • Worldwide

You can volunteer in your area. Type in your zip-code and scroll down.


I received all of my information through the United Way webpage.
