Community Investment

It takes both time and money to make a significant difference in communities. For over 60 years, United Way of Greater New Bedford has been a leader in raising both individual and corporate investments as well as mobilizing volunteers. This in turn builds the capacity of nonprofit organizations and ultimately makes a difference in people’s lives.

United Way brings together volunteers, donors, businesses and other local nonprofit organizations create the community investments that work to advance the common good. The dollars raised through our annual fundraising campaign are funneled back into the community, supporting local programs that address a wide spectrum of needs and target specific outcomes.

When you support United Way, you are investing in the community – keeping neighborhoods safe, helping children & youth, and making sure everyone has access to the most basic human needs.
