We are working to break the cycle of poverty for Greensboro families.
Learn more about poverty in Greensboro and how we are tackling the root causes.


The way we solve human service issues in Greater Greensboro is changing. Today, our community requires an innovative approach to discover and set forth solutions. We are working with partners in new ways, leveraging emerging technologies and continually innovating in how we serve our community.



Financial integrity and strong internal controls permit sound investment. In addition, what makes United Way unique is that we work strategically to multiply your contribution. For every $1 raised, we create $1.70 of value.



Poverty has a face. Those in need seek services from programs provided by our dedicated nonprofit partner agencies and their staffs who proudly commit their careers to serving where there is need.  Together, we change lives. Together, we will break the cycle of poverty for families in Greater Greensboro.
