Mile High United Way invests in 84 Strategic Investment Partner Organizations
Mile High United Way is proud to award the 2016-2018 Strategic Investment Grants to 84 of the highest-performing organizations in Metro Denver. These selected partners are implementing strategies directly aligned with Mile High United Way’s four Community Impact Goals and demonstrate impact with measurable outcomes. When we are united with the full force of the community, we know there is no problem we can’t solve together.
The Mile High United Way Strategic Investment Grants are just one of many ways Mile High United Way is working to ensure children enter school ready to succeed, children are reading at or above grade-level by the end of third grade, youth graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education and entry into the workforce, and individuals and families can meet their basic needs and are afforded every opportunity to move toward economic success.
Grantees were determined through a rigorous and competitive community selection process. We are grateful to the 132 volunteers including stakeholders, donors, subject-matter experts, business and community leaders, and Trustees who came together to review 200 proposals. Today, thanks to these dedicated volunteers, we are proud to share the 84 Strategic Investment Partners who are helping us change the odds for the children, families, and individuals in Metro Denver.
Metro Denver is growing rapidly and as it grows, so do the challenges that face our community. With nearly 130 years of deep community experience, Mile High United Way continues to take on the big issues facing our community with dedicated community members who unite with us on a daily basis. Whether you are a volunteer, donor, or partner, thank you for joining us.
