You have the power to create positive change.  Your contribution makes all the difference.  By giving to the United Way, you inspire changes for a healthier region and ignite hope in our community’s youth.

United Way Donor Designated gifts make the biggest impact in our local community.  Funds are directed to local programs that address our community’s most significant needs in the areas of education, income, health and wellness.

You may choose to designate all or a portion of your total gift to the Boys & Girls Club of Elma, Marilla and Wales (Designation #450).

The United Way of Buffalo & Erie County does not charge a fundraising fee on designated contributions.


Join us in caring for thousands of kids in our community.  Your investment helps each member achieve academic success, live a healthy lifestyle, and demonstrate good character and leadership.  With your support, we can give children the tools needed to succeed while keeping them accountable and encouraged to do the work necessary to achieve it.

Our Commitment – We promise to use your investment wisely, responsibly, and efficiently to achieve a real, sustainable and measureable impact for the children and families in our community.  We will be transparent and open in sharing our successes and our challenges.
