We believe the caring power of community can provide everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential.
Founded in 1959 in Grand Junction, Colorado, United Way of Mesa County (UWMC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that raises money from the community to fund local programs that address community concerns. UWMC is one of more than 1,300 community-based United Way organizations. Each is independent, separately incorporated, and governed by local volunteers. All the money raised here, stays here.
United Way of Mesa County fights for the Health, Education and Self-Reliance of every person in our community. Our work is focused on these building blocks for a good life:
- Health - People are connected to regular, quality physical and mental health services
- Education - Parents are supported throughout early childhood development, all children enter kindergarten ready to learn, and more students are reading at grade level by 4th grade
- Self-Reliance - Residents have access to basic needs in times of crisis
