dc.descriptionThe United Way movement began in 1917. Charities in Toronto and Montreal started community collectives in order to raise money to support their communities. These collectives were also started in other parts of the country and were known under a variety of names including: Red Feather, Community Chest and the United Appeal. In 1973 these organizations took the name of United Way. United Way campaigns raise money for local groups that are involved with community issues. The national organization provides leadership and support to its members. Volunteers make up the United Way boards and work on local fundraising campaigns. Each United Way is responsible for its own community.en_US
