Anyone can advocate for a better tomorrow.

United Way of Greater New Bedford is advocating every day – whether it’s through the programs we fund, the community initiatives we administer, or the partnerships we are involved in. We believe to build a stronger community, we must all come together to advance the common good. Through our programs and initiatives, we advocate everyday on important issues in Greater New Bedford.


Give an hour. Give a Saturday. Reach out a hand to one and influence the condition of all. GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER. Think of WE before ME.

In the most simple terms, when you LIVE UNITED, you choose to improve your community by giving of yourself to make an impact. Together, United, we can make an impact, every day. Whether you give, advocate or volunteer… you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow. So go ahead and LIVE UNITED. Do it in public. Be visible. Be loud.
