The Mile High United Way Strategic Investment Grant application process is now open.
For over 132 years, Mile High United Way has been proud to be the steward of our community’s collective generosity, and to bring voice to the most critical issues facing our community.
Over the past decade, the greater Denver community has grown and changed dramatically. With those changes have come the responsibility to respond in ways that a decade ago, we could not have imagined. Working with our community partners we have learned from the insights you have shared.
To that end, you will see an evolution in our Strategic Investment Grant (SIG) process. We are placing a greater emphasis on under-resourced communities and a greater emphasis on supporting our youngest Coloradans and their parents.
As our communities change around us, we are grateful for your willingness to engage in partnership with us, and to lead the way in creating hope for the future for every family.
All applications must be submitted online to Mile High United Way by 5 p.m. MST on January 31, 2020.View Information Packet
