To unite people, organizations and resources to improve lives and build strong communities throughout Yavapai County.
The United Way of Yavapai County (UWYC) is a dynamic, community building organization serving individuals and families who live in beautiful Yavapai County. We are a collaborative agency driven by people dedicated to our mission!
United Way envisions communities where everyone has the opportunity for a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and resources available for sustained good health. By mobilizing the caring power of communities to advance the common good, we can achieve these goals.
As a community-impact agent, UWYC strives to identify unmet needs and address them by funding programs and networking with experienced agencies. Your donation is considered an “investment” in our community, and it is our goal to maximize the return on every investment! This is best accomplished through outcome-based funding. Once community needs are identified, we partner with local agencies and target funding toward programs that are based on prevention with a focus on creating solutions. We invest in programs considered to be the building blocks of healthy communities.
United Way’s role is to recruit people and organizations throughout Yavapai County who bring passion, expertise and resources to get things done. Solutions are cultivated from within communities, building on their experiences and passions, while also having the ability to draw on effective solutions from 1,800 communities and to take good ideas to scale in any one of the 41 countries and territories. It takes all of us – people, government, business and nonprofits working in partnership to tackle social change.
