Conferences and Events

United Way offers a range of conferences and events throughout the year to help you train, develop, motivate and inspire staff and volunteers. Some programs, like our Fundraising for Impact Summit, bring together cross-functional teams from local United Ways for shared learning, while others include volunteers, donors and/or corporate partners.  Our biennial United Way Community Leaders Conference offers executive, volunteer, staff and partner leadership a convening designed to celebrate, innovate and network among like-minded peers working across communities worldwide.  We invite our corporate partners to consider sponsoring many of our programs; click here for more information.
