United Way

United Way is an international network of over 1,800 local nonprofit fundraising affiliates.[2][3] United Way was the largest nonprofit organization in the United States by donations from the public, prior to 2016.[4]

Current logo used since 2004. An earlier version of this logo was designed by Saul Bass in 1972.[1]

United Way organizations raise funds primarily via workplace campaigns, where employers solicit contributions that can be paid through automatic payroll deductions.[5][6] After an administrative fee is deducted, money raised by local United Ways is distributed to local nonprofit agencies.[7] Major recipients have included the American Cancer Society, Big Brothers/Big Sisters, Catholic Charities, Girl Scouts, Boy Scouts, and The Salvation Army.[8]
