A COMMUNITY OF CHANGEMAKERS
We’ve improved the lives of more than half a million of our neighbors. With your help, we can do so much more.
By supporting United Way’s Impact Fund, you help deliver critical assistance and change the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors by meeting basic needs, moving toward financial stability and building success in school and life.
Connecting people at times of crisis with immediate, essential human needs such as shelter, safety and food.
Helping working families and individuals overcome short-term instability and create a path to a more financially secure future.
Addressing disparities in educational opportunities from early childhood through school years and helping young people become successful adults.
On January 16, United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania kicks off our Book Drive for Diversity to coincide with MLK Day. This annual initiative helps build success in school and life by inspiring young readers with positive, inclusive books that focus on diversity including ethnicity, class, gender, physical abilities, race and work statuses. You can contribute NEW books from our specially curated list of titles which will be distributed to children through schools, agency partners and early learning centers across Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Fayette and Westmoreland counties.
Click here to sign up to receive the link to purchase the preselected titles.
Meeting new people has been Lisa Kelly’s specialty for more than two decades, and she loves every minute of it. As one of United Way’s Tocqueville Development Officers, Lisa works directly with Tocqueville Society members and helps them become involved in the work of UWSWPA.
