Dignity, Justice, Respect

For 96 years United Way of Miami-Dade has lived by core principles that all of us should expect for ourselves and grant to others. Those words carry even greater weight today.

As these tragic events continue to demonstrate, without equity for all of us, the community we aspire to be is nothing but a dream.

No matter the race, income, background and zip code, every individual should have an opportunity to thrive. It is why we do what we do – fight for the education, financial stability and health of every individual in our community. We stand with our communities in this moment of grief and call upon all of us to come together to heal wounds, address systemic issues and ensure equity and justice for all.

Maria C. Alonso, President & CEO, UNITED WAY OF MIAMI-DADE

Who we are

Changing lives is at the heart of what we do – from our beginnings in 1924 to now. We partner with hundreds of individuals and organizations that share a collective vision for what is possible. Through our work in education, financial stability and health, we are improving the odds for children and families, today and for generations to come.

        A NEW WAY TO HELP

        We can get through this together, but we cannot do it without you. Earlier this year Congress enacted the CARES Act legislation that includes new financial incentives to give generously to qualifying charities. This new Act allows most Americans to deduct more donations to charities from their taxes for 2020.
