Retire United

Retire United

Retire United members are retirees (or soon-to-be-retirees) who recognize the important role volunteerism and philanthropy play in strengthening our community.

United Way invites you to expand your community involvement, participate in volunteer opportunities, join in social events, continue giving, and more during your retirement.

No matter where the next chapter takes you, we can connect you with the local United Way.

Top 4 ways to kick-start your retirement with United Way!

  1. Volunteer your time.
  2. Share why you give back, join Retire United.
  3. Plan for the future.
  4. Continue to give back financially, calculate your impact.
