When you donate to United Way of the National Capital Area, you’re doing more than giving money. You’re making a statement that you’re stepping up to join the equity movement for the health, education and economic opportunity of every person in our community. You are one of the supporters providing opportunity, guidance and strength as we find solutions to our region’s toughest challenges. When none are ignored, all will thrive.

You’ll also join United Way NCA’s donors who have pledged themselves to the equity movement. Your donation will go directly to the area programs and initiatives that need it most as we reduce disparities and increase equity in the region. Donate today and help United Way NCA provide young people with academic and social support, train adults for jobs that pay a family sustaining income and connect people in need to medical care, housing and other basic support. It’s a win-win for you and the community you care about. Interested in becoming a monthly donor? Click here.
