Retire United


We are champions of a caring community.

Retire United is a group of dedicated and engaged individuals getting ready to retire and retirees who are passionate about the mission of United Way. We want all children and youth to succeed, all families to be self-sufficient, and all people to enjoy maximum health and independence.

"Our generation thought we could change the world. As a retired baby boomer, I still think we can. Large numbers of boomers are retiring every day. These are people with knowledge, skills and time. The potential of this growing group is incredible and virtually unlimited... I am fascinated by what could be accomplished." - John, Retire United Member

Members in Action

Retire United members, friends, and family competed in the 4th Annual Valley of the Sun United Way Scavenger Hunt. Teams were challenged to find items downtown, take photos, and raise funds for United Way.
Retire United members are passionate volunteers for Vello, an online tutoring program connecting adults with kids in their community for guided reading sessions. Vello makes volunteering easy and fun! (Learn more about Vello.)
Retire United members raised their hands, rolled up their sleeves, and chose to participate in United Way's second Unite: Day of Action. They joined more than 1,000 volunteers at 15 sites across the Valley to help end the cycle of poverty.
