Here are three compelling reasons why YOU should get involved!

When life turns for the worse, there usually are no easy answers.  United Way understands that to get back on solid footing, and people need all kinds of help.  Whatever it takes, we're with you every step of the way.  Here are three compelling reasons why one should get involved.

One gift helps so many

Through United Way, you support a network of 3 local agencies helping people throughout the Roanoke Valley.  These agencies range from the Red Cross to small, lesser-known organizations -- like the Northampton County Council on Aging-- that promote positive change.  These agencies are there when needed.

You help address urgent, unmet needs

A portion of your gift is also targeted to work with agencies that have innovative programs that respond to new and emerging needs.  These include quality child care for working parents and services enabling our growing elderly population to stay self-sufficient in their homes.

You can see the results

Your donation stays right here in the Roanoke Valley.


If you are interested in becoming a partner agency, please contact us via email through our website or at 252-537-3744.  


Roanoke Valley United Way  Equity Statement on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion:

The Roanoke Valley United Way exists to unite people and build a stronger community in the Roanoke Valley.  We recognize structural and systemic racism, ethnic discrimination and other forms of oppression have contributed to racial disparities and inequities experienced in our nation and the local community.  We commit to upholding equity as part of our core value as we commit to being champions for all people in the Roanoke Valley.  

Therefore, we strive to remove structural barriers, dismantle disparities, and eliminate inequities by working collaboratively with public and private partners to create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities, and networks they need to thrive.
