For 100 years…

United Way of San Diego County has worked in alignment with partners to address inequities in our region and help underserved communities. We have stayed vital to this community in great part due to the rich relationships we share with our corporate and community partnerships.

San Diego has always been a community of change, and ever since we began in 1920, our organization has proudly met that challenge, adapting to the needs of a region in transition. Our efforts to continue being a community of change, to continue transforming lives, are as critical as ever. The urgency is now.
