Uniting People. Changing Lives.


United Way helps local children and families succeed in school, work, and life by tackling the source of community challenges and driving change that lasts.


We’re building a movement to change more lives and strengthen our community in three key ways:


1. Uniting People and Organizations
Our community is full of people with a passion to help others and make things better. United Way brings together people and organizations from across Larimer County, including nonprofits, schools, businesses, government, community leaders, volunteers, and donors, to solve problems together. Together, we’re aligning scarce resources, sharpening strategies, and creating results that work better for everyone, especially kids and families in need.


2. Helping children and families succeed
Every year, thousands of our Larimer County neighbors benefit from United Way’s innovative partnerships, including Be Ready, Kids on Track, and Working Families Thrive, and our life-changing programs, like 2-1-1, Colorado Reading Corps and WomenGive. Together, we’re helping local children succeed in school, supporting families to become financially stable and self-sufficient, connecting people with food and shelter, and much more. By looking at the whole picture and addressing underlying causes, we are helping more of our neighbors create a future filled with promise and opportunity.


3. Empowering people to act
In Larimer County, we don’t sit on the sidelines while our fellow community members struggle. That’s why thousands of donors, advocates and volunteers have already joined our movement to change lives and strengthen our community, and we’re growing stronger every day. There is something for everyone, including opportunities to donate, volunteer, or spread the word. Your support of United Way is an easy, reliable, and strategic way to make a difference, not just today but for years to come. No matter how big or small – your support makes a difference.
