About United Way

United Way improves lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities around the world to advance the common good.

United Way is engaged in nearly 1,800 communities across greater than 40 countries and territories worldwide; and is focused on creating solutions based in the community and led by members of the community that strengthen the cornerstones for a good quality of life: education, financial stability and health.

For example, you could donate $50.00 to place four veterans of the United States armed forces in the workforce; or $100.00 for a year of afterschool enrichment for a middle schooler.

Delta Air Lines is a proud partner of the United Way — which converts your dollars into tangible quality of life improvements for children and real people in your community — and has been for years.

As with past causes — such as this one from earlier this month where you will receive ten American Airlines AAdvantage miles for every dollar donated to Stand Up To Cancer — this is another chance for you to donate to a good cause and earn some frequent flier loyalty program miles in the process.

If you are interested in other causes to which you want to support, please consider visiting the InsideFlyer Cares | Community Giving forum; as well as the Milepoint Cares Initiative, where you can find numerous reputable organizations which you can support — and hundreds of communities served by United Way are amongst the reputable organizations which are supported.

“So, is it better to give than to receive?” asked Randy Petersen in this extensive article pertaining to charitable miles back on Tuesday, November 20, 2007. “It appears you can do both with miles and points and be quite happy about it.”
