United Way is the world’s largest privately funded non-profit organization and raises over $5 billion every year. Across the United States, a coalition of 1,261 United Way chapters partner with businesses, civic organizations, educational institutions, healthcare providers and more with many decisions made on the local level.
United Way claims neutrality on the Life issue, but many chapters have financially supported Planned Parenthood programs. According to United Way’s own admission, an estimated 5-6% of local chapters donate to the abortion provider.
In 2015, 2nd Vote created the Pro-Life Guide to United Way to provide conservatives with a free resource that shows which chapters do contribute to Planned Parenthood. The most recent publicly available financial documents show 75 (5.94%) United Way affiliates donating to the abortion provider. Our research team updates the information each year and has linked the supporting documentation.
Use the guide below to know if your donations could be supporting Planned Parenthood’s operations and pro-abortion advocacy. This page was updated on June 7, 2016.
