Berkshire United Way is making a community of hope and opportunity where every individual and family lives, works and thrives by improving the quality of life in Berkshire County by mobilizing resources to address community priorities and create sustainable change.
BUW advances the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Our focus is on early childhood literacy, youth development and financial stability, the building blocks for a good quality of life. BUW recruits the people and organizations who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. LIVE UNITED is a call to action for everyone to be part of the change.
We oversee and fund the Pittsfield Promise, the Pittsfield Prevention Partnership, and Face the Facts - reduce teen pregnancy which aligns with our goals of increasing the 3rd grade reading proficiency rate, reducing youth substance abuse and increasing aspirations, and reducing teen pregnancies countywide.
