We are proud to be the first United Way in the world.

Mile High United Way was the very first United Way in the world. A group of visionaries including a Denver woman, priest, two ministers and a rabbi, all who believed there must be a better way to meet the needs of local people, came together on October 16, 1887, and formed what is known today as Mile High United Way. Today, United Way has 1,800 local chapters across the globe.


When you give to Mile High United Way, your dollars do more. We surround our community with the programs and resources that address today’s biggest issues and help prevent tomorrow’s.
