Generation United

Generation United, Young Professionals Network provides the next generation of philanthropists, volunteers, and community advocates with opportunities to make meaningful, measurable change in Larimer County. Young Professionals can get involved by positively impacting young readers in our community while supporting United Way of Larimer County’s focus on kindergarten readiness, reading at grade level by the end of third grade, and high school completion.

Generation United is creating a space for all young professional donors to be more involved with the important work of strengthening Larimer County. We are creating a network with a purpose that believes in removing barriers and promoting reading. A community that is open to everyone from first-time volunteers to long-term supporters to create lasting meaningful connections while improving our community – and having fun while doing so.
