If you’re a 501c3 nonprofit serving Greater Fall River and looking for up to $10,000 to support the health, education, or financial stability programming.

United Way of Greater Fall River believes everyone deserves opportunities for a good life: a quality education that leads to sustaining job opportunities, enough income to support a family, and a good, healthy lifestyle that increases life expectancy.

Your donation supports basic needs, disaster relief and recovery, and programs that provide essential services such as behavioral health and family supports, outreach to seniors and veterans, and quality out-of-school enrichment experiences.

It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.

These unprecedented times have put United Way’s purpose to the test. Our mission “to improve lives by mobilizing people to invest in the community where their resources are needed most” has never been more relevant.  We support our partner agencies with sustainable funding, recognizing that their presence is needed now more than ever. The need for access to behavioral and mental health clinics, crisis hotlines, food pantries and soup kitchens, job assistance and training, early childhood education and youth services is greater now than it has been in recent history.  Together with our partner agencies, we are engaging in the work to respond, recover, reimagine, and rebuild Greater Fall River as a community, post-pandemic.
