About Us

Why United Way

We bring people and organizations together to do more than any of us can do on our own. Employers, nonprofits, government, faith organizations, educators, labor, health providers, community leaders, youth and many others partner with us.

Together, we tackle some our community’s toughest issues. We’re after solutions that create real change. It’s not simple, or easy. But we’re making progress, and seeing results.

Our United Way is headquartered in Hartford and serves central and northeastern Connecticut. We’re part of the United Way Worldwide network that engages nearly 1,800 communities across more than 40 countries and territories worldwide.

United Way Worldwide is the largest privately-funded nonprofit in the world, creating solutions that build stronger communities. United Way Worldwide improves education, strengthens financial stability and makes communities healthier.

Locally, we connect people with causes that they care about through United Way. As an individual or as an organization, you can get involved by volunteering or giving to our local community.
