2021-2023 Strategic Investment Grants

For over 133 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. We take pride that we never take our eyes off our goal: to create opportunities for everyone in our community to succeed. In alignment with our Strategic Investment Grants and priority areas, we are pleased to do this work in partnership with you.

We align our beliefs and operate our programs to ensure our youngest learners have the resources they need to thrive, parents are supported with vital resources like childcare, and individuals and families have their emergency and basic needs met.

We are excited to move forward with the 2021-2023 Strategic Investment Grants for Emergency and Basic Needs, which places an emphasis on the essential needs of individuals and families, including rent and utility assistance, childcare support and programs, and access to food.

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.
