When you donate to United Way NCA, you’re doing more than giving money. You’re making a statement that you’re stepping up to join the fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community. You are one of the fighters providing opportunity, guidance and strength as we tackle our region’s toughest challenges.

You’ll also join United Way NCA’s donors who have pledged themselves to the fight. Your donation will go directly to the area programs and initiatives that need it most. 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.

Learn more about the benefits of giving through our affinity groups: United Way Tocqueville Society, United Way’s Women United and United Way Young Philanthropists.
