United Way’s mission ‘to improve lives and strengthen communities’ is fuelled by the passion and hard work of our worldwide 2.8 million volunteers. People are giving their time and talents to create lasting solutions that improve life for everyone.

Meaningful community solutions require more than money or programs or policies. The kind of real and lasting change that benefits everyone is only possible when people from all walks of life are willing to roll up their sleeves and go where their time and talent is most needed.

Employee Engagement

The United Way New Zealand Corporate Connect programme offers a structured and meaningful engagement for employees from our Corporate Partners to improve community spaces, and experience first-hand the difference their donation makes.

Skilled Volunteering

Contribute your expertise to help our team and/or our Community Partners on a range of projects. It can make a huge impact – see our advice on how to approach skilled volunteering.

Day of Action

Each year on and around June 21, communities around the world come together to harness the volunteer spirit and improve the conditions in which they live. Day of Action is an opportunity for communities to come together and address the issues that matter most to them. For some, it’s stuffing backpacks full of books to encourage reading and improve early literacy. For others, it’s planting community gardens to foster civic pride and promote affordable, healthy eating.

Evaluation & Allocation

Volunteers play a key role in deciding what financial grants are allocated each year. Working in regional teams, meeting all organisations that have applied for UWNZ funding and recommending or not who should receive a grant.
