GIVE TO UNITED WAY
Your gift keeps Marylanders in homes, helps kids in school, and provides access to healthy food and jobs that pay the bills.
Thanks to donations to United Way of Central Maryland, Briana was able to graduate from high school and provide a better life for her daughter. Isabella, who is blind, was able to get to a food pantry to feed her family during the pandemic. Pete, an Army veteran, lost his job and then his home when COVID-19 struck. With United Way's help, he now has a place to live and is getting the support he needs.
Thanks to our extensive network of partners, donors, and volunteers, United Way is prepared like no other organization to translate your generosity into meaningful, lasting change.
Your donation goes where it’s needed most in the community, and to programs that are held accountable for measurable outcomes.

Your gift to United Way supports:
GIVE WHERE IT’S NEEDED MOST
A gift to United Way of Central Maryland improves lives for residents of Greater Baltimore and the surrounding counties by promoting equity and increasing access to education, health, employment, and housing.
Through services and partnerships, we work to rapidly rehouse those who have lost their homes and prevent homelessness for countless others, helping to reduce rent costs and waive security deposits.
Your donation will help us provide enough—and better—food for every family by distributing food and meals, ensuring that communities have healthier shopping options and easier access to nutritious food, and increasing awareness related to wellness and nutrition.
There are districts in our region where up to 40% of students won’t graduate from high school. Our education programs help put students on the right track to earn a diploma and achieve their dreams.
Through GED instruction, job readiness training, career mentoring, and apprenticeships, we put people on track to gain the self-sufficiency we all desire and deserve—and that will help them to attain a stable, healthy life for themselves and their families.
211 MARYLAND UNITED WAY HELPLINE
Our 24-hour, free, confidential helpline answered more than 200,000 calls in the past year, and helps us identify and rapidly respond to new and emerging needs in the community.
EQUITY & SOCIAL JUSTICE FUND
Supporting equity and social justice will help us address inequities in United Way Neighborhood Zones, ensure educational equity for all students, including young men of color, and fund organizations focused on addressing racial inequity.
As we respond to help our neighbors and neighborhoods recover and rebuild during the pandemic, your gift will help fund immediate needs like food, housing, and employment, as well as provide internet access and computers and mental health support for those in need.
VETERANS TREATMENT AND SUPPORT
Many veterans have trouble transitioning to civilian life, and their struggles can sometimes lead to minor law offenses.The Veterans Treatment Court program serves those who have served us by providing critical support and resources to help them navigate their lives outside of the service and clear their records.
