Our People

Across UnitedHealth Group, UnitedHealthcare and Optum, our employees are helping individuals and communities by volunteering and providing financial support.


Employee Giving

We support our employees as they generously give of their financial resources to causes closest to their hearts. Through our year-round giving program employees give whenever, wherever and however they choose.

  • Whenever: Our program is available 365 days a year, so employees can give at their convenience.
  • Wherever: We double employee donations to nearly all nonprofit organizations. Whether they give to a health-related nonprofit, their child’s school or an animal welfare organization, we’ll match their contribution.
  • However: When employees track 30 hours of volunteer time in a calendar year, they automatically earn $500 to donate to the nonprofit(s) of their choice.

Employee Volunteering

Every day, our people give their time and talents to help build healthier communities. UnitedHealth Group supports employee volunteer efforts by providing our people with:

  • Digital tools to match personal interests with volunteering opportunities;
  • Programs that align personal skills with specific needs;
  • Volunteer councils that organize volunteer activities; and
  • The opportunity to earn $500 to donate to the nonprofit(s) of their choice when they track 30 volunteer hours in a calendar year.
