Get Involved!

For over 75 years, the United Way of Greater Charlottesville has convened people, companies, the University, foundations, social services, schools, and other organizations to work together to strengthen our community. There are many ways to get involved, including:

  • Serve on a committee or board.
  • Provide an Employer Matching Program to maximize the positive impact of your organization’s commitment to our community.
  • Be a Sponsor of United Way events to get double the exposure with event advertising and promotions for popular and well-attended community activities.
  • Create a volunteer team for our annual Day of Caring.

Focusing on financial stability, school readiness, and connected community, the United Way allocates resources to solution-oriented organizations and initiatives that address these issues at scale. We tackle systems and structures that cause discrepancies of equity and opportunity in Charlottesville and the surrounding area with the goal of reducing poverty in our community.
