Ways to Support

Join the region’s largest poverty fight. 

Make no mistake, your gifts, time, advocacy, and support fuel life-saving, transformative missions across Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey.

Since 2018, we’ve raised over $65 million to help children and families overcome poverty.

That’s more children reading at grade level, more people growing their financial assets, and more families buying their first homes – all because of your support.    

Now, more than ever, your support can drive real change in our region.

Giving is easy. You can donate right now online or mail a check to United Way of Greater Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey at P.O. Box 787897, Philadelphia, PA 19178. 

 

Give Today

 

Because of you, we can:

  • Invest in the most effective poverty-fighting nonprofits in our region  
  • Support a whole-family approach to breaking the cycle of poverty 
  • Identify gaps and gather diverse voices across sectors to fund and fuel solutions
  • Advocate for bold solutions and policy at the local, state and national level 

Your GIFT matters

When you give to United Way, you join a collective network of over 40,000 donors committed to changing lives and strengthening communities. Here are just some of the ways your gift makes a difference for children and families experiencing poverty throughout the region.

to which we can move forward.
