Why you should attend

This year we need your support more than ever before. United Way has been on the front lines of the pandemic, mobilizing a coordinated response to help local families through this crisis. To date, we have provided food to over 16,000 households and financial support to an additional 35,000 families.

But, so much more is needed. With more than 500,000 people out of work in Greater Boston since early April and the economy only cautiously and slowly re-opening, the need for food and housing assistance remains greater than ever. That’s why we need your help.

  • Know your Impact The resources raised by this breakfast make immense change possible for families in need throughout our footprint.
  • Meet the right people: The Breakfast is one of your industry’s top fundraising events, and every year hosts more than 1,200 attendees, 59% of whom are members of the C-Suite, together representing 297 firms in the region.
  • Get involved: Be inspired to do more in your community through United Way.
