Learn more about how you can help support causes you care about through United Way Miami.

Today, many of our neighbors in Miami-Dade County continue to face hardships that demand our immediate attention. For the past 40 years, the University of Miami has supported the United Way with a tangible demonstration of its commitment to our community and as part of its mission to strengthen the local quality of life. You can help. And there is no better time than now to make an impact. The following is more information about this year’s campaign. Give today.

Donate to a cause you’re passionate about.

When making a gift, you may direct your contribution to the United Way Miami’s mission of education, financial resiliency, or health. You also can direct a gift to a local nonprofit organization, including the University of Miami. Have a local nonprofit in mind? Check the drop-down menu on the giving page to see if it is listed or have it added. Make your gift today.

Special support reaps benefits.

Faculty and staff members who contribute one percent of their annual salary may be eligible for additional benefits when supporting the United Way at the leadership level. Donors at the one-percent level will be invited to a reception hosted by President Julio Frenk in January 2023.

Roll-over options available.

Employees may elect for their contributions to roll over each year. If you elected the roll-over option for 2022, you may update next year’s pledge online. Login to Workday and click “give,” and “United Way,” to update. You will be redirected to the United Way giving portal page, which provides the option to change the pledge for 2023.

Meet your ambassador, get involved.

The TeamUM United Way Ambassadors play a significant role in ensuring our success. Our volunteer ambassadors support areas across the institution in hosting events and other fundraising initiatives to creatively raise funds to support the United Way. Meet the ambassador for your area.
