Funding

We believe in comprehensive solutions to
combat our region’s most pressing issues.

United Way is one of the largest nonprofit funding organizations in the region. We invest in dozens of nonprofit agencies in communities throughout our service area. We use our Steps to Success framework to guide funding decisions and ensure dollars go to organizations and programs working in each of our nine key areas.

Funded Programs

United Way of Greater Richmond & Petersburg is a major funder to more than 70 programs at more than 50 local organizations. We provide millions of dollars annually to a range of agencies working on the front lines to create lasting change in communities throughout the region. Visit the Our Partners page to see a full list of programs we fund.

Community Volunteers

United Way relies on volunteers to support the funding process. The Community Impact Council is staffed by a group of dedicated volunteers.

Support our Community Investments

Funding is made possible through generous gifts from donors who give through workplace campaigns or make individual gifts.
