Partner Agencies

United Way of Northern California distributes grants to non-profit agencies. This year we are awarding a total of $100,000 to 28 North State agencies for distribution in calendar year 2018.

All projects funded align with United Way’s mission to fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our communities. Programs benefiting youth were a significant funding priority this year, as youth development and enrichment are key goals of the community-wide Prosperity Initiative led by United Way.

Other United Way grants focused on basic needs, supporting food programs, domestic violence services, drug and alcohol treatment and homelessness initiatives.

Grant awards range from $2,500 to $5,000 and recipients span across eight counties in the North State.

These grants are supported in part by United Way’s workplace giving campaign. Employees of local businesses and organizations donate through their payroll checks; there are also opportunities to volunteer and to speak out for causes that matter to them.
