Get Involved



We rise by lifting others. Your local United Way is working on an even larger scale to help families heal and meet our 20-year promise to end poverty in the Capital Region. Together, we can help families overcome obstacles, meet the challenges that come their way, and provide access to opportunities, so they can thrive, and our communities can too.

Make an Impact Now



Volunteers transform our communities. Volunteers devote time and talent to create a meaningful difference and impact in our region.  Whether you want to volunteer once, once a week, or once a year, we have something for you on our Volunteer Center. Give an hour. Give a day. We want you to join us as we make a difference in our region.

If you have any questions about these projects, or any project on our calendar, please contact Diana Vo at



United Way hosts signature events every year that encourage positive change and improve the community. There’s an activity for everyone to get involved and learn more.
