The Campaign for What Works (C4WW)

Unifying the voice of nonprofits to leverage their power

The Campaign for What Works (C4WW) is a joint effort initiated by United Way of Allegheny County, the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership, and The Pittsburgh Foundation to ensure the future of human service programs and the well-being of the people they serve.

It is a civic campaign that helps the human and social service nonprofit sector - people who deliver important services and programs to Pennsylvanians who need help - better advocate the importance of their work and why it matters.

To reach this goal, the Campaign for What Works:

  • Encourages all levels of Pennsylvania’s government to make human service organizations a priority;
  • Raises public awareness of the value of Pennsylvania’s human service organizations and
  • Advocates for the tens of thousands of Pennsylvanians who rely on human services – struggling families, individuals with disabilities, vulnerable children, seniors trying to remain independent - whose voices often go unheard.

The Campaign for What Works supports, promotes, and highlights the importance of proven, innovative programs in Pennsylvania that provide human and social services to those in need in a more efficient manner at less cost to taxpayers.

It also partners with many organizations and statewide coalitions who are working together to keep children safe, support seniors and people with disabilities and protect vital programs for struggling families, including transportation, health care and public education.

We encourage you to Join the Campaign.
