In an outstanding show of support, Berks Countians surpassed our $11 million goal to contribute $11,113,813 to the 2023 Campaign.

John and Karen Arnold, who co-chaired this year’s campaign, shared their appreciation at our Victory Celebration. “When we work together, we can do meaningful and impactful things. It takes businesses, donors, volunteers and partners – all of us working together. When we do that well, we all benefit,” they said. “We share our gratitude with each one of you who care deeply about this community and are part of the United Way family. Together, we make good go further.”

“Each one of our donors is a source of inspiration,” said Tammy White, United Way President. “By supporting United Way, they turn their compassion into action, and we are so grateful.”

All dollars raised in the 2023 Campaign will support health and human service needs in the coming year, impacting 190,000 local people.
