Sign up today for our United Way e-newsletter. We'll tell you how you're helping us build a stronger community.
United Way of the Columbia-Willamette harnesses the collective power of individual generosity to build strong, connected and engaged communities. We have the tools and the know-how to connect people in need with the building blocks for a stable and healthy life—education, financial stability and health and well-being.
Your support creates change. When you give money to United Way, you directly fund local projects that connect people with jobs, provide affordable housing and promote healthy living. When you volunteer your time and talent, you help children achieve in school or you give seniors and people with disabilities newfound autonomy. When you use your voice, you help set priorities that will provide opportunity for everyone in our community.
We know our community. Every dollar of every donation to United Way goes to projects that work.
