Funding

We believe in comprehensive solutions to
combat our region’s most pressing issues.

United Way is one of the largest nonprofit funding organizations in the region. We are currently investing in over 70 programs at more than 50 local nonprofit agencies in communities throughout our service area. We use our Steps to Success framework to guide funding decisions and ensure dollars go to organizations and programs working in each of our nine key areas. Visit the our Partners page to see a full list of programs we fund.

Funding is made possible through generous gifts from donors who give through workplace campaigns or make individual gifts.
