United Way of Greater Los Angeles
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’ve helped power some of the most impactful and innovative policy initiatives, coalitions, and programs in L.A.’s history. From creating pathways out of poverty and homelessness to leading the movement for education equity for all LAUSD students—our work is focused on the people who are most in need of support. We’re turning your contributions into support for people in crisis and creating shared prosperity in communities across Greater Los Angeles.
