Welcome to United Way of the Wine Country

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.

Campaign/Fundraising

Invest in Our Community Through United Way

Each year, hundreds of local organizations support United Way of the Wine Country by running a workplace giving campaign. Facilitating a campaign is not just a way for companies to show their community support but also allows employees to show individual support by making an annual pledge. Many companies offer payroll deduction which allows employee donors the convenience of incremental payroll deductions to help the local community and further United Way’s work in education, financial stability, and health.

Here are a few ways your gift will make a difference in our community:

Our resource development staff will be happy to help you customize your campaign, making it fun and engaging regardless of the size of your organization. Whether you’re looking for simplicity of online pledging or other giving options, contact United Way’s resource development staff:
