HELP US SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY WE LOVE!
How can you ensure that your donated dollars to our community are well spent? How do you know where the greatest need is? Our all-volunteer board of directors will do the "heavy-lifting" to find the best home for your kind gifts through a rigorous grant review process and diligent results accounting. Instead of duplicating services, we are supporting the work done by agencies already established.
United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability and healthy lives.
United Way of Eagle River Valley brings this vision and mission to our small community by providing valuable grant resources to over 25 hard-working non-profit organizations in Eagle County.
These grants that come with no additional marketing or administrative burdens can be funneled directly into programs that deliver real results. With just one part-time staff member, an all-volunteer board and some in-kind services donated by local businesses, we are able to keep our administrative costs very low, therefore granting as much raised as possible.
In addition, many of these agencies will apply for federal or other national grants and having the United Way on their roster of grantors is beneficial to their request. Based on the current needs of Eagle County, we fund agencies in three categories:
Your one single donation can help over 25 local agencies serve tens of thousands!
