Unity Campaign

Launched in 2014, the Unity Campaign was built on the success of two previous fundraising efforts - Frederick 48 and Frederick News-Post's Season of Hope. When County funding for local nonprofits was being elimintated, an effort was begun to "fill the gap" by raising funds from the Frederick Community. The Unity Campaign has a clear and vital mission to support local nonprofits who serve those in need of food, shelter, clothing, financial sustainability and healthcare as well as at-risk children and youth.

Starting in 2017, the Unity Campaign's operations move to United Way of Frederick County, where United Way serves as the campaign's fiscal agent and facilitator. United Way is proud to build on the success of the campaign and continue to work with Frederick News-Post, our Incentive match sponsors and you, our community, so we can continue to provide basic human needs programs and services for at-risk youth.
