We’re All Ears

United Way Bay Area is conducting a listening tour

to enhance our efforts to end the cycle of poverty in the Bay Area. We want to ensure that our priorities and strategies align with the needs of people in our community and inspire our donors to give, advocate and volunteer.

Over the next few months, we hope to engage people from all of the groups we touch – partner agencies, community stakeholders, clients, corporate and private donors, volunteers and more – to listen to their ideas and opinions on community needs and what we can do to address them together.

In the spring of 2018, United Way Bay Area will issue a report summarizing what we heard and learned and announcing our updated Impact Agenda—United Way Bay Area’s goals, focus and strategies for fighting local poverty in 2018 and beyond.

Thank you in advance for your valuable input. We look forward to reporting back and involving you in our mission to help everyone in our community to thrive.
