United Way of Greater Los Angeles

Creating L.A.'s future. Together.

We can accomplish more together than alone. That’s why for 100 years, generations have trusted United Way of Greater Los Angeles to help navigate natural disasters, economic hardship, housing instability, and so much more. We’re a guide neighbors turn to for giving—and receiving—help.

We’re turning your contributions into support for people in crisis and creating shared prosperity in communities across Greater Los Angeles.
