United Way Romania

United Way Romania is a Romanian foundation, registered under Romanian law in June 2004 and affiliated with United Way Worldwide, USA. It is an independent body, separately incorporated and governed by local volunteers.



Our vision is of strong, supportive communities committed to helping people reach their potential.


Our mission is to improve the quality of life in our communities through individual giving, corporate giving, and volunteerism.


To engage more companies and individuals in CSR, philanthropic and volunteering activities.

To enable social services NGOs to offer higher quality services to our community members.

To promote transparency and professionalism.

To support government institutions and the civil society in their efforts to build prosperous communities.

United Way Romania’s activities are based on the “Live United” principle, founded on the certitude that, together, relevant actors and community members can contribute to a better life for everyone: quality education leads to a stable job, provides a decent income that can support a family and a good health.​

United Way’s impact is primarily due to volunteers – who contribute, through their resources and expertise, to change the community they are a part of. United Way Romania’s programs annually support over 11,500 children, young people and the elderly in highly vulnerable situations.
