Give a Gift of Hope

United Way of Broward County's

Holiday Fund

Many people look at the holiday season as a time to give back to the less fortunate, but issues like hunger and poverty last all year long. Many members of our own community are in desperate need of the most basic necessities.


United Way of Broward County invites you and your family to help those in need by donating or volunteering at a partner agency. The holidays are a wonderful time to teach your children ways to give back and it also is a great time to find your passion and commit to a yearlong philanthropic state of mind.


Join United Way of Broward County and help make the holidays brighter by making a monitary donation or view our funded partners' wish list to purches items requested by those who need help this holiday season.


There are two ways to Give A Gift of Hope:

  1. Click here to make an online donation.
  2. Click here to view the wish list and make an           in-kind donation.

Did you know that the current homeless population in Broward County is more than 3,800? Help those in our community who don't have a home this holiday season.
