From leading employee volunteer events to helping with disaster relief around the world, we’re there for the communities where we live, work and fly. We work with nonprofits to use United's resources to create meaningful change in communities everywhere. Our work focuses on four key areas:
Disaster relief – We lift up communities in crisis after natural and man-made disasters by delivering supplies and volunteers using our planes. We also partner with nonprofits best equipped to provide relief to the communities that need it.
Environmental sustainability – We support United’s Environmental Commitment by working with local environmental conservation programs, projects to recycle leftover goods from our flights and nonprofits dedicated to advancing clean energy technologies and environmental justice.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion – We’re breaking barriers and promoting inclusion by championing the work of local, national and global nonprofits that reflect our values, from fighting systemic racism to supporting veterans, the LGBTQ+ community and people with disabilities.
Education – We strive to inspire the next generation of leaders by partnering with nonprofit organizations that help K-12 students explore future careers in aviation and support STEM education.
