Working side-by-side with the community, Mile High United Way takes on critical human services issues facing our seven-county footprint including the Metro Denver, Boulder, and Broomfield communities. Through our community programs and initiatives, we focus on our three interconnected Community Priorities: giving all children a strong start, supporting education and academic success, and creating economic opportunity for all.
Unite people, ideas, and resources to advance the common good.
A community united to create opportunities for all.
Where We Work
Adams, Arapahoe, Boulder, Broomfield, Denver, Douglas, and Jefferson Counties in Colorado.
CELEBRATING 135 YEARS
This year, Mile High United Way is celebrating 135 years as the first United Way in the world! Our story began on October 16, 1887 when a group of visionaries, including Frances Wisebart Jacobs, a priest, two ministers and a rabbi, formed what is known today as Mile High United Way. They believed there was a better way to meet people’s needs, and today, United Way continues their mission at 1,800 local chapters across the globe.
WE MEASURE OUR WORK IN LIVES CHANGED
We listen to every voice.
We ensure children are entering school ready to succeed, young adults are prepared for college or the workforce, and families have their basic needs met and have opportunities to move toward economic success.
We take action, together.
We know that not one organization alone can solve our community’s toughest problems. We mobilize the people and resources needed across the public, private, and philanthropic sectors.
