United In The Community

D.C. United in the Community

D.C. United are committed to making a positive and measurable impact in the lives of children and families in the DMV region. Our primary focus is to support programs and initiatives focused on health & wellness, inclusivity, and community improvement.

As we face the uncertain challenge from the COVID-19 pandemic, we know now more than ever, it’s important to be together. While, we can’t physically be together, it doesn’t mean we can’t be United, which is why we’ve deepened our commitment to being a good community and strengthened our dedication to making a positive impact in the DMV.

Community Building

#UniteTheDistrict Player-Led Fundraiser

D.C. United’s first team has come together to form a targeted effort, #UniteTheDistrict, to raise funds to support the mission of local nonprofit, Martha’s Table, in their commitment to protecting the health and well-being of the D.C. community and in response to the COVID-19 crisis. In addition to the player-driven fundraiser, the club has also pledged to donate up to $50,000 in funds and food while club staff have volunteered to assist in the pick-up and delivery of food to those in need, primarily in D.C.’s Wards 7 and 8, where there are only three grocery stores across both Wards.
