Giving Communities

Want to make a difference?

Each of our giving communities offer opportunities for you to connect with other like-minded people and learn about the issues facing our community. Whether you prefer exclusive volunteer opportunities, Q & As with national experts, fun happy hours or theater-packing fundraising dinners, options to make a difference abound.

Further, as a United Way donor, you’re part of a powerful swell of collective giving aimed at fighting homelessness, helping students graduate and breaking the cycle of poverty in Seattle and throughout King County.
