Our Story

  • The United Way of Boyertown Area has a long history of supporting the local agencies that provide much needed services to the Boyertown School District Area. As far back as 1932, community volunteers raised funds for the Boyertown Community Chest to benefit Boyertown service agencies.  In October 1958, it was rechartered as the United Community Chest Fund of Boyertown Area and renamed the United Way of Boyertown Area in 1979.  It is a tax exempt, non-profit organization registered with the IRS as a 501-(c)3 organization. During it’s over 85 years of existence, it has performed a function identical to other community-based United Ways throughout the United States

Our Approach

  • Using volunteer help, funds are raised in the community to support programs in local agencies that benefit people in the Boyertown area community. The local agencies are non-profit and each must meet a rigorous set of eligibility requirements to become (and remain) a member agency.
