The United Way of Boyertown Area has a long history of supporting the local agencies that provide much needed services to the Boyertown School District Area.
As far back as 1932, community volunteers raised funds for the Boyertown Community Chest to benefit Boyertown service agencies.
In October 1958, it was rechartered as the United Community Chest Fund of Boyertown Area and renamed the United Way of Boyertown Area in 1979.
It is a tax exempt, non-profit organization registered with the IRS as a 501-C3 organization. During it’s 80 years of existence, it has performed functions identical to other community-based United Ways throughout the United States.
