Give United Day is June 8

When you give to United Way of Greater Atlanta on Give United Day, not only will your gift double, you will take action to ensure children across our 13-county region can follow their dreams, letting nothing stand in their way of a future filled with possibilities. Can we count on you?

What We're Up Against

1 out of 3

Only 1/3 of the children in Greater Atlanta are having their early childhood care needs met. But we know it’s crucial for them to enter school prepared to learn.

3 in 10

In many Greater Atlanta communities, about 37 percent of high school students have the financial means and pre-requisites to enter college and graduate—that’s compared to more than 70 percent in communities with high child well-being.


In some Greater Atlanta communities, more than 50% of families wouldn’t be able to cover a $400 emergency.


Children who grow up in poverty have a 4 percent chance of moving into the middle class.

Four Ways We Transform Lives

At United Way of Greater Atlanta, we believe that every child deserves to be happy, healthy and educated. With the help of our community partners, we identified four investment priorities with the highest potential to improve child well-being across the 13-county Greater Atlanta region.

Build Strong Learners
Give children the tools they need from the start to set them up for a successful future.
Prepare Youth for Careers

Create a clear path for Atlanta’s youth — from high school to college and beyond.

Increase Economic Stability
Improve job skills, health costs, housing and financial education to help families convert income into wealth.
Create Brighter Futures
Create equitable growth in the most challenged communities so everyone, regardless of race or zip code, can thrive.


Our Efforts Are Greater When We Work Together

children became stronger learners through securing housing and receiving basic needs for their families, receiving support to build reading skills, strengthening their family engagement, and increasing their access to health services and quality early learning.
youth were supported for higher education and high-growth careers through strengthened academic support, expanded career pathways, increased college planning and secure housing and basic needs.
individuals received access to childcare/afterschool care, job skills, financial training, and housing and basic needs, in order to reach economic stability.
individuals will be supported through investments that expand key coalitions, increase civic participation, and improved advocacy that directly improve communities in Clayton, South DeKalb and South Fulton County.
