Existing programs are essential, but if we continue to fight poverty in the same way, we are supporting the barriers that can keep families trapped in poverty.

We could not do the work we do without caring community members who are willing to think and invest differently. When you give to United Way, you are investing in a new approach to solving poverty. Instead of meeting one need that a child may have today, you are helping whole families find success every day and for generations to come.
Our General Needs fund is built through gifts from individuals like you, who care about making strategic investments that have the greatest potential for creating a better future for the people of Snohomish County. We also receive support from community-minded companies, foundations, and public partners.  
Your investment in United Way of Snohomish County can change lives. For more information on investment levels for yourself or your organization, and how they will impact our community, please reach out to Director of Development, Elizabeth Gromko at
