Private Equity / Venture Capital
Using our passion and expertise to seed innovative models and deliver high impact.
United Way’s relationship with the private equity and venture capital (PE/VC) industry has been built over the course of more than 25 years, and includes a major fundraising event as well as the development of signature volunteer projects and partnerships on United Way strategic initiatives.
HELP FIGHT FOOD INSECURITY AT UNITED WAY’S PRIVATE EQUITY/VENTURE CAPITAL INDUSTRY NIGHT!
For more than 25 years, hundreds of us – from the most influential leaders to the newest associates – have joined together for a high-powered networking and even higher-powered community impact. We’ve raised more than $20 million over the years, to support United Way’s work to help strengthen our communities. Again this year, we’re teaming up with the United Way Thanksgiving Project to provide a week’s worth of groceries to local families experiencing food insecurity over the holidays.
