United Way Bay Area's programs and services are urgently needed. Today, 1 in 4 Bay Area residents lives in poverty. And child poverty has more than doubled in the state, reaching 16.8% in 2022, up from 7.5% in 2021. The Bay Area is a place where many thrive, while many others barely survive.
When you give now, the generosity of your gift will be doubled, up to $350,000! And if your company matches, your impact could be tripled!
Lasting change does not happen overnight. But with your support, we’re able to meet the basic needs of more of our neighbors and give them the tools and resources they need to lift themselves out of poverty.
