FAQs for United Way of Greater Newark

United Way of Greater Newark exists to improve the lives of individuals, children and families within our footprint to strengthen the collective community. We address the three main tenets of community issues through programs and service initiatives, and collaboration with other change-makers in the community. Those tenets are education, financial stability and health.

Our mission is to disrupt the cycle of poverty by convening, collaborating, and investing in strategies to improve outcomes for children and families. United Way of Greater Newark convenes with local government, funders, foundations, and corporations. We invest in small businesses, local nonprofit organizations, children, and families. We purposefully collaborate with social service providers, public health sectors and local food pantries to assist our communities.​

We believe in the ability to transform communities through the power of volunteers.

Volunteering can be a deeply rewarding experience where you can make immediate and lasting change by improving lives and building a stronger community. Visit our volunteering page for more information and to get started. 

Through generous giving and personal commitment, we are transforming lives today while laying the foundation for the future. If you’re unable to volunteer or collaborate, consider a tax-deductable gift to help us continue our work.
