Your gift builds a stronger community

As the Workplace Campaign for Berkshire United Way wraps up, I want to share how your gift helps more than 17,000 people from Clarksburg to Sheffield and everywhere in between.

When you give to Berkshire United Way, your gift is combined with donations from more than 5,000 donors, and the impact is enormous! We use that money to invest in a broad range of programs to meet the needs and interests of all. Our commitment to donors is to do the research and invest your money where it is needed most. By working together, we help strengthen our funded programs and increase their reach, bringing the community together to solve problems that no single program, organization or sector can do alone. 

Together, we are building a stronger community in a “United Way” by:

Helping parents become their child’s first teacher through 6,000 home visits by Child Care of the Berkshires and Community Health Programs.

Connecting more than 250 young people with a caring adult at the Railroad Street Youth Project, Dalton CRA, Pittsfield Community Connection and Barrington Stage Company.

Returning more than $1 million out of $2.2 million Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) dollars to Berkshire County residents through Central Berkshire Habitat for Humanity, Hilltown Community Development Center and Berkshire United Way.

If you’d like to join us in making a difference, you can make a gift online, or by calling us at 413.442.6948. On behalf of our friends and neighbors throughout the Berkshires, thank you for your support.
