United Way of the Wine Country has been dedicated to improving lives locally for 50 years. Everyone deserves a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, income that can support a family through retirement, and good health. To create lasting change, United Way focuses on solving the underlying causes of common problems related to education, income and health. We are committed to achieving lasting solutions - not just quick fixes - for our entire community.
United Way of the Wine Country’s annual fundraising campaign provides more than $1 million in donations to 400+ local nonprofit agencies. We provide donors the opportunity to give to a designated nonprofit agency of their choice through United Way’s fundraising efforts. This United Way tradition is part of our value and continues with a variety of easy ways for donors to give: payroll deduction, online giving, and monthly giving via credit card.
Numerous workplace campaigns, individual engagement, and community-wide engagement opportunities reach thousands of donors, volunteers, and advocates. This allows hundreds of nonprofit agencies to benefit from United Way’s work and fundraising efforts. Donors can designate to any 501(c)3 health and human service nonprofit organization.
We could not do any of the work we do without our community nonprofit partners. Below are just a few of the many who support our efforts to improve lives locally:
