Give to United Way

Help us solve the 757’s biggest problems and give everyone the opportunity to thrive.

Improving Our Community for Generations

As our community grows, we know there are people in need who we’re not reaching or who fall through the cracks. The United Way of South Hampton Roads Foundation ensures we can help everyone in the 757 thrive. The Foundation supports the efforts of United Way by providing a long-term base of financial support for United Way, its certified agencies and its charitable, social, educational, and human service initiatives, activities and purposes. The Foundation is a place where individuals and families can invest in the next generation of our community through planned giving vehicles such as: Endowed Donor Advised Funds, Unrestricted Funds, Field of Interest Funds, Designated Funds, Organizational Funds, Scholarship Funds or contributing to one of our existing Agency Funds.

In 2018, we launched the United for the Future Future endowment and programmatic campaign to bolster our efforts to create lasting, systematic change and ensure our ability to serve our community for generations to come. We began with an ambitious goal of raising $35 million over three years, but increased the goal to $40 million in response to the dramatic rise in need following the pandemic.

We are thrilled to share that we have not only met our aspirational goal, but we exceeded it! With this overwhelming support, we are poised to change the life trajectory of thousands of children, families and veterans in the 757. And with them, raise future generations of out of the cycle of poverty. The funds we’ve raised will strengthen United Way’s day-to-day services through investments in program expansion, allowing us to reach more people in need, and ensuring our sustainability far into the future.
