Donations and Support

The United We Care Employee Relief Fund was created to help those in the United Airlines family who are facing financial hardship after a natural disaster or due to an unforeseen personal hardship. The Fund relies primarily on individual donations from employees and retirees, as well as support from United Airlines to fund this program. Every contribution helps and, when combined with the donations of others, can provide a tax-free grant (USA) to help a fellow employee or retiree in need when they are facing the unexpected.

Make a Donation

Anyone can make a voluntary ongoing gift or one-time gift directly to United We Care using a credit/debit card. United Airlines domestic employees can also donate through payroll deduction.
