A Second Century of Impact

Unite with us

Join us, as we unite people, resources and funding to help build strong and equitable communities where everyone can thrive. This is more than a campaign; United Way is a cause. Unite with us as we lift and strengthen people, families and neighborhoods across Missouri and Illinois.

Helping people live their best lives takes all of us. Individuals, companies, unions and foundations, each striving to make the Greater St. Louis community a better place to live. Our founders, a small group of volunteers in 1922, had a vision, a powerful idea and desire to help those in need. By banding together, working as one, to give collectively, they could help all.

Each year, through our annual community campaign, we raise funds to support our over 160 nonprofit agency partners and region-wide programs and initiatives.

We celebrate and thank our generous community for coming together during our 2023 Community Campaign to raise millions for our region. Read a heartfelt message from our President and CEO, Michelle Tucker, and learn how your collective efforts help change lives and create lasting impact.
