There are many options available to connect you to your community and desire to give back. So why United Way?
Nearly 200,000 people in our community live in poverty, nearly 16% of whom are children. The Triangle ranks 95th in the nation among top 100 urban areas for social mobility, meaning children born into poverty are unlikely to break that cycle. We need to do more for them NOW.
United Way of the Greater Triangle’s mission is to eradicate poverty and increase social mobility through the power of partnerships. Through our strong local networks we are able to maximize the resources of hundreds of corporate partners and thousands of donors to create real and lasting impact on some of our community’s toughest challenges. Your support accelerates the momentum of other generous individual and corporate supporters, and together we can do more.
We are taking on the issues of homelessness, hunger, education, literacy, health and career readiness by working constantly to reach more individuals, more families, and more of our neighbors in need. We invest in, and partner with, nearly 100 nonprofit organizations doing impactful work to make the Triangle a stronger community for all who live here. United Way also partners with an additional 500 nonprofit organizations through our designated gift program, through which donors can support organizations for which they have deep passions and commitment.
United Way of the Greater Triangle employs a solution-oriented strategy by raising awareness of issues, engaging people in our work and investing in long-term, sustainable change, ultimately creating better futures for children and families in Durham, Johnston, Orange and Wake Counties who deserve to thrive. Children and families need you NOW. Stand with your fellow givers. Make a difference. Please give today.
