When the nation's largest video, high-speed Internet and phone provider was founded in 1963, United Way was the first organization that Comcast supported. Now, 50 years later, Comcast is one of United Way’s top 50 corporate partners across the country. Comcast was one of the first companies to conduct a company-wide United Way giving campaign simultaneously across the country. Since 2001, the campaign has provided more than $50 million in total support to United Way. 

In the Portland area, Comcast shows its commitment to the community through a vigorous Employee Campaign, fundraisers like a poker tournament and pancake breakfast—as well as the Internet Essentials program, which boosts speeds for low-cost Internet service for low-income families. The annual Comcast Cares Day volunteer event brings together more than 1,900 Comcast employees and members of the public to volunteer in our four-county region. Thank you, Comcast, for all you do to help break the cycle of childhood poverty!
