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. Our local United Way is a change agent and demonstrates inclusive behavior by moving from awareness to action, recognizing differences as strengths,valuing diversity of opinion, and respecting members of our Boyertown area community regardless of culture, religion, race, age, gender, sexual orientation, socio-economic standing, and origin.
