United Way of Central Maryland


Your gift keeps Marylanders in homes, helps kids in school, and provides access to healthy food and jobs that pay the bills.

Each of the regions we serve--Baltimore City and Anne Arundel, Carroll, Harford, and Howard counties--is unique, but there are common needs and challenges in all.

Our Region United Network helps United Way achieve its strategic aim to reduce the number of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families and individuals and to improve access to life's essentials--housing, health, education, and employment.

The Region United Network is a group of volunteer boards in each of the counties we serve. They help advance our mission, vision, strategic plan, programs, and policies through:

Advice: Serving as strategic advisors providing knowledge and guidance on local needs and issues affecting their jurisdiction

Action: Connecting United Way with local businesses, foundations, government representatives and organizations, and other institutions to help support our work

Accountability: Building trust by providing stewardship of donor dollars, assisting with grantmaking, and ensuring that funding recipients are making progress and achieving expected results.

Advocacy:  Connecting with lawmakers in their regions in support of policy changes to break down barriers for those who struggle to make ends meet

Selected for their belief in our work, their deep knowledge of and demonstrated leadership in their communities, and their commitment to community service and volunteerism, our Region United Network boards help fuel our ability to provide what's needed, where it's needed across Central Maryland.
