While United Way's primary purpose is to serve the existing and emerging needs of the Greater Rochester community through Community Fund organizations, we provide a valuable philanthropic service to hundreds of health and human service organizations in the Greater Rochester region. Through our donor designation program, we collect, process and transfer donations on behalf of hundreds of local organizations.
United Way also provides processing services for national corporations, allowing companies to support United Way of Greater Rochester and United Ways in other communities across the country.
