For over 44 years, United Way New Zealand has been helping build an Aotearoa where citizens unite to improve lives locally. We move people from poverty to possibility, help young people to be all they can be, and build strong and healthy communities. We harness the potential of your donations, skills and people power by connecting them with charities to improve lives.
