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 CORE Fund (formerly the Local Community 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.  
Investing in our CORE work is a unique opportunity to support two national approaches that we are modeling locally: Collective Impact and the 2-Generational Approach.
