Our Work | United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg
Happy volunteer at childcare center

Empowering people to solve problems.

We empower people, like you, to unite and solve complex problems that affect us all. We team up with community volunteers and nonprofit leaders. Together, we ask tough questions about problems affecting people. We listen deeply. Then we dig beneath the surface of these problems to understand them – and generate real solutions for real people.


People in Greater Richmond & Petersburg are resilient, and yet they face a daily struggle.


With your help, we can do something to make life better for people in our community.


Children learn more, adults earn more, and all people will be safer and healthier.
