Our Commitment to Equity

We are a Larimer United. We believe that equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities no longer predict socioeconomic, education, and health outcomes. We stand in firm opposition to all forms of racial and ethnic discrimination – and we know that is not enough. We actively seek opportunities to learn with and from our partners, stakeholders, supporters, and community members to better understand the complicated history of racism. We commit to advancing equity and justice through practice and policy changes at UWLC and catalyzing a shift from charity to change-making within our four focus areas of Youth & Education, Financial Stability, Nonprofit Excellence, and Community Engagement.

We acknowledge that incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusion into our practices is an ongoing learning process, and as a result, we consider this statement to be a living document which reflects our evolving approach. We invite you to join us in making Larimer County a community where all people feel valued, safe, and have the opportunity to thrive.

United Way’s Equity Definition

Equity is the intentional inclusion of everyone in society. Equity is achieved when systemic, institutional, and historical barriers based on race, gender, sexual orientation, and other identities are dismantled and no longer predict socioeconomic, education, and health outcomes.

 “Overcoming poverty is not a task of charity, it is an act of justice. Like slavery and apartheid, poverty is not natural.
It is man-made and it can be overcome and eradicated by the actions of human beings.”
—Nelson Mandela
