United Way seeks to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.
Everyone deserves the opportunity to create a good life.
This is achieved by securing health, education, and financial stability and ensuring that an individual’s basic needs are met. These pillars of focus cyclically fuel one another and encourage a path where education helps secure gainful employment which then provides enough income to support an individual and their family. Once these puzzle pieces are in place, a healthy lifestyle can flourish. United Way of Greater Fall River’s Annual Campaign is a fundraising vehicle for supporting programs and initiatives that promote this pathway to a better life.
It takes everyone in the community working together to create a future where we LIVE UNITED.
United Way of Greater Fall River directly supports close to 100 programs within our service areas through allocated funding, food grants, impact grants, and special initiatives. These partners have identified the greatest needs and where there are gaps in service. Donations to the Annual Campaign help bridge these gaps and positively impact the community.
Advocacy for the health, education, and financial stability of every individual must exist at the city, state, and national level for true progress to occur. United Way is committed to fighting for 5 million people to access better employment, 95 percent of students to receive their high school diploma, and for 90 percent of individuals to improve their health.
Volunteering is a cornerstone of the United Way of Greater Fall River. We help connect individuals to opportunities throughout the Southcoast in addition to organizing annual events like our Day of Caring and Day of Action. These initiatives help spearhead community-driven action while supporting our three pillars of focus. Looking to volunteer? Contact us for opportunities!
