About United Way of Mass Bay
United Way of Massachusetts Bay is a nonprofit organization with a proven track record for helping individuals achieve their own limitless potential. It is our priority to effect positive change by reducing the barriers to social and economic opportunity, especially for children and families facing multiple obstacles. Investments are targeted to four interdependent areas: Healthy Child Development, Increasing Youth Opportunities, Sustainable Employment, Affordable Housing. Through public policy, volunteer mobilization, and by raising and guiding the investment of over $40 million dollars annually in a diverse portfolio of community based organizations, we open the doors to social and economic opportunity.

Volunteer Solutions is a nonprofit organization founded in 1997 by a group of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) students, recipients of MIT's prestigious Entrepreneurship Award. They developed an exciting website, supported by a comprehensive database of volunteer opportunities.

This partnership brings together the strength of each organization - United Way's longstanding relationships with local volunteer programs and Volunteer Solutions' web expertise.
