In 2022 United Way Bay Area (UWBA) celebrates 100 years of fighting poverty across the San Francisco Bay Area. 100 years of uniting community members, building and operating programs, and providing resources to Bay Area residents. We celebrate YOU: Those we have the honor to serve, our partners, donors, volunteers, and friends. You inspire and empower us to continue, year after year, as we charge ahead into our second century of impact, more determined than ever to dismantle the root causes of poverty and build equitable pathways to prosperity.
Founded on December 22, 1922, United Way Bay Area (UWBA) has worked to address the root causes of poverty in the San Francisco Bay Area region.
Since 1922, United Way Bay Area has been a change catalyst – bringing the community together to address our toughest issues and most urgent needs. Although our strategies and approach have changed over the past 100 years, our commitment to an equitable and thriving Bay Area remains the same. Today, through initiatives and policy change, we provide immediate and long-term support for employment, housing, financial stability, and meeting basic needs. We are committed to being a champion for inclusion and systemic change – building an equitable Bay Area where all people have the opportunities and resources needed to thrive.
This year, as we celebrate the progress community members like you have made possible, we invite you to join us in our Centennial year. Learn more and purchase tickets.
