United Way of Miami-Dade

United Way is much more than a funder of programs. By supporting United Way, you enable us to fund programs that have a real and lasting impact on people's lives. You support our ability to advocate on behalf of important social issues. You enable us to build partnerships and coalitions that further our ability to accomplish the goals we set out. You support our ability to convene people around a table to address key issues and find solutions. By supporting United Way, you do much more than simply fund social services. You advance an agenda to take care of what matters. This United Way is a committed leader. While many charities address one cause, United Way focuses on the whole community.

The United Way Endowment

The United Way Endowment perpetuates United Way's mission of building community by people caring for one another. The Endowment is building a permanent savings account that responds to our community's emerging health and social service needs. By helping individuals and families make a lasting difference while making sound, tax-wise financial decisions, The Endowment touches all of our lives, today, tomorrow and forever.

Loaned Executive Program

"United Way's loaned executive program is one of the best development opportunities for future leaders in our community… and a terrific way to give back to our community."

Loaned Executives (LE's) are Miami-Dade County employees, borrowed by United Way during their annual campaign to help increase the capability of United Way. Without the LE's, United Way would not be able to take care of what matters to our community. Last year, LE's helped United Way achieve another successful campaign.

Loaned executives develop and implement fundraising campaigns by working with top management and employee campaign coordinators at workplaces throughout Miami-Dade.
