Take Action

We cannot do the work we do without caring community members like you. There are multiple ways that you can help United Way of Snohomish County continue our important work of catalyzing, supporting, and investing in groups of partners, who all have shared goals of creating more equitable systems for families with young children trapped in poverty. 


Giving a gift to our organization ensures we can continue to create more equitable systems within Snohomish County. Our CORE (Creating Open Roads to Equity) work is focused on children prenatal to age eight, because the learning, development, and stability of a child’s early years is crucial to their success in life. We believe collaborative solutions for both children and the adults in their lives have the greatest potential to not only meet the needs of families today, but will support the success of the whole family for generations to come. Your one-time or re-occuring monthly donation helps our community achieve these goals.


Civic engagement is important, and there are many new and innovative ways to get involved. We encourage you to advocate for the issues that matter to you — whether that's open roads to equity for Snohomish County families, or something else important to you. You can make an impact in our community!

Company Involvement

While many companies now practice some form of social responsibility, many are making it a core of their operations. Strong companies start with happy and loyal employees, and making giving easy is key. But workforce campaigns are more than just collecting funds; they’re opportunities to learn, share, and advocate for families struggling to get by in our community.

While we are slowly getting back to a post-Covid environment, we hope to have more in person events in the future. Visit our events page to see upcoming in-person and virtual events. By investing your time and intellect more creatively, we can truly make a lasting impact for families with young children in Snohomish County.
