United Way of Long Island


United Way of Long Island advances the common good, creating opportunities for a better life for all by focusing on the three key building blocks of education, financial stability and health.  

We recruit people and organizations that bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done.  LIVE UNITED® is a call to action for everyone to become part of the change.  United Way of Long Island is part of a worldwide network spanning across 41 countries and territories, including more than 1,200 local organizations in the U.S.

We do this by developing programs and funding over 105 community partners.  Together, we invest in education to ensure children succeed in school and achieve their potential.  We help families become financially stable and independent.  And, we ensure our communities have access to healthcare, food, and positive lifestyle choices.  Our expert staff, supported by a high profile Board of Directors, brings together partners and volunteers from across Long Island to discuss issues, raise funds and develop programs for the building blocks of a good life:

  • A quality education that leads to a stable job
  • Enough income to support a family
  • Workforce readiness
  • Good health
