United Way in Fairfield County

Since 1940, the United Way has worked in Fairfield County to advance the common good by focusing on education, financial stability and health.  These are the building blocks for a good life - a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.

Causes may come and go, but communities are forever.

The United Way of Fairfield County raises over $1.5 million annually using a team of volunteers who help educate fellow workers about the growing array of human service needs in Fairfield County.

Beyond United Way’s financial support to local programs, United Way is the partner of choice for many corporations, organizations, agencies, and individuals who want to make a real impact in their community.  Because of these partnerships, United Way can effectively advocate for Fairfield County’s most pressing human service needs. United Way’s strength is its ability to build partnerships, forging consensus and leveraging resources to make a measurable difference in the Fairfield County community.
