United Way of Snohomish County invests in solutions that improve lives. Grants for programs and services that address critical needs in our community are a key strategy in our work. From childcare to housing for the homeless, disaster relief to job placement services, programs funded by United Way are making a difference every day.
Funding decisions are made by volunteers that we call Vision Councils. The three Vision Councils comprised of subject experts, ordinary citizens, agency representatives, and funding partners assess community needs and review proposals. They base their recommendations on the priority of needs, a program’s effectiveness and its ability to show measurable results.
During our 2013-2016 grant cycle, United Way is funding 106 programs. These programs are among the best in our community at delivering quality health and human services. Each agency was held accountable for the funds it received and for showing measurable outcomes and effective results. For help from any community service, call 2-1-1. Together, we are building a stronger, more caring community.
