Strategic Investment Grants

It is with the belief and vision for a Community United, that we are proud to announce a $7 million investment in our seven-county footprint.

Mile High United Way is proud to award $7 million to over 100 organizations that are meeting our community’s most pressing needs.

This investment allows us to ensure children have a safe place to live, families have food on the table, parents are connected to childcare resources so they can return to the workforce, and our family’s most basic needs are met.
