Jackson United

Last Visited »

We each have the power to make a difference in our community – and at Jackson, we do every day by caring for the health of the residents of Miami-Dade County. But our community has additional needs! Too many children still lack high-quality education, and too many families are still struggling to make ends meet. From making a pledge to joining our fundraising efforts throughout the month of November, you have the opportunity to impact the community beyond Jackson’s walls. Join Jackson’s 2016 United Way campaign and, together, we can change more lives than ever before. If you’re new to United Way, click here to learn more about all of the great work the organization does, and consider making a donation.

Make a Pledge

When you give to United Way, you are making a difference in individual lives and the quality of life we all enjoy. This year, we have made it simple to donate and support United Way. With our hybrid campaign, you can either make a pledge in person via your department or hospital representative, or donate online by clicking here.

Dress Down Fridays

This year we are bringing back our ever popular “Dress Down Fridays”, where you can donate $5 for a chance to wear jeans and other casual attire to work every Friday throughout the campaign. You can make your donation via your department United Way representative. Your representative will provide you with a sticker that you must wear all day each Friday. Anyone who does not wear the required sticker will be sent home.
