Donate Take Action

The Live United Initiative is an eight-week effort to highlight the vital work United Way is doing in 40 countries. Building community matters more than ever. COVID-19 has widened the opportunity gap, especially in education, financial stability, and health. The pandemic has made it harder for many who'd already been struggling to get by, especially racial and ethnic minorities.

United Way galvanizes people to tackle society's toughest challenges, with global reach and local impact. And there's so much work to be done. That's why Superbowl champion Russell Wilson and his wife, Grammy-winning singer Ciara, are urging everyone to step up and LIVE UNITED.

Let's all commit to building stronger, more equitable communities where everyone can thrive.

With your support, we can help every person have an equal opportunity to thrive. Now more than ever, we need to Live United.
