Thank You - United Way of Greater St. Louis

A Cycle of Kindness

Thank you for helping.

From Charlie keeping the confidence to accelerate through life without worry and Tommy giving his wife a hug for the first time since recovering from a stroke, to Darius getting the support he needs to get a job he loves and meet his potential, beautiful moments happen here every day because of you.

Your gift to United Way impacts others in such a positive way that they want to do something to help others, too. This cycle of kindness begins to help more and more people and the whole community gets better as a result. Thank you.

A message from our CEO

Thank you for your continued support, dedication and belief in our plans for the future.

“This is the conclusion of our 94th year. We will charge through the 95th year, having our centennial milestone in sight, with the knowledge that we have the best investors, vision casters and volunteers in the galaxy. We are proud of the partnerships we have with so many, yet we recognize the need to continue bridging divisions to chart a future that our entire region can believe in and be a part of.”
