United Way of Northern California is currently recruiting energetic, dedicated volunteers. Whether you are looking to volunteer one time or on an ongoing basis, you can make a big difference in the community. Through our partnerships with over 100 local nonprofit agencies and programs, we can connect community members and businesses to virtually any type of volunteer opportunity they may be seeking.


You can be the driving force for positive change for our community’s most pressing needs. Your contribution, however big or small, makes a real difference in your own backyard. Your gift stays local, touching 1 in 3 people in your area each year, maybe even your own family, friends or neighbors.

Gifts to the United Way of Northern California are tax-deductible and invested wisely in high-quality, results-driven programs. With low administrative and fundraising costs, more of your money goes to services in the community. We partner with other agencies, which boosts our helping power. With gifts from people like you, we can collectively accomplish more in one year than any individual can accomplish in a lifetime toward building a stronger community. Choose a cause that’s meaningful to you, and experience the rewards of donating today.
