United Way Mumbai (UWM) is a non-profit organization that endeavours to leverage corporate, employee and leadership talent for community development. Through corporate gifts and employee giving campaigns, United Way Mumbai seeks to successfully engage the corporate sector into meaningful Social Responsibility structures bringing about a positive and lasting change in the communities. UWM is a chapter of United Way Worldwide, which tops the list of the world's largest privately funded non profits, collectively raising more than USD 5 Billion every year, from 9.8 million donors and 2.6 million volunteers, United Way Worldwide is not only the largest non-profit, but an integral part of communities around the world.
There are several charitable organizations involved in commendable grassroots activities, but do not have the wherewithal to acquire funding for their projects. United Way Mumbai strives to not only bridge this gap but also to help in capacity building of NGOs. The endeavor is to ensure a steady stream of income for sustainable projects which aid long term community development. With United Ways operating across the world, it has been possible to incorporate best practices as part of our core competency. Several systems and processes have been put in place in order to ensure efficiency in transactions with both corporate and NGO partners.
United Way Mumbai is today an acknowledged name in resource mobilization, handling large donations from corporate donors and their employees. In our 12 years' association as the philanthropy partners to the Mumbai Marathon, we have helped raise the charity figures from Rs 7.75 Crores in 2009 to Rs 45.95 Crores in 2020.
United Way Mumbai strives to bring professional management concepts into practice. The high degree of involvement of the Governing Board, comprising corporate CEOs, adds to the credibility of the organization’s functioning ensuring the highest standards of integrity are maintained in fund allocation and management.
