Take Action

Join the equity movement and initiate change in your community.



Change begins with you.

There are many needs in our region surrounding the health, education and economic opportunity of all community members. Help United Way of the National Capital Area reduce disparities and increase equity by becoming a part of the solution. When you give, advocate and volunteer, our communities grow stronger, our relationships get deeper and we create opportunities where they didn’t exist before. When none are ignored, all will thrive.



Your donation goes to community programs and initiatives that need it most, providing young people with academic and social support, training adults for jobs that pay a family-sustaining income and connecting people in need to medical care, housing and other basic support.
