United for Equity

United for Equity is United Way Quad Cities’ initiative to increase awareness of local racial inequities and build community and political will to address them. Our priorities and investments are aimed at addressing the systemic issues that affect opportunity and mobility for low- to moderate-income children and families.

With your help, and help from partners and investors, this multifaceted project aims to reduce and prevent racial inequities across systems that impact education, income and health in the Quad Cities.

We need your help!

A more equitable Quad Cities starts with you. Your generous gift to the United for Equity Fund will help empower our community and allow the United Way to support new equity-focused solutions, programs or initiatives that address poverty and structural racism.
