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 endowment campaign to ensure our ability to serve our community and create lasting, systematic change for generations to come. This campaign is about looking to the future and working together to create solutions that have long-term impact. It’s no longer enough to support someone through crisis – to transform our community, we must help our neighbors move not just to stability but to full self-sufficiency.

We launched United for the Future with a goal of raising $35 million but have since increased our aspirational goal to $40 million to respond to the dramatic rise in need in our community over the past year. Thanks to our community’s profound generosity and the above and beyond giving of our most loyal donors, we expect to reach our goal this year. If you have not yet made your gift, we hope you’ll consider joining us to leave a lasting legacy in your community. With your support, we are poised to change the life trajectory of thousands of children, families and veterans in South Hampton Roads. And with them, raise future generations out of the cycle of poverty.
