A gift to the United Way Community Fund benefits the entire community, not just one program, issue or population. Donations are invested exclusively in the Treasure Valley, to improve the lives of local people in need. Every program that benefits from the Community Fund must demonstrate measurable results and good financial management.
You can donate today by clicking on the “Donate Now” link at the top of this page. It’s a quick, easy way to help United Way impact local communities.
Payroll deduction is another popular way to contribute. You decide a set amount to be taken out of your paycheck every pay period.
There are approximately 1,400 United Ways across the country. They exist in their respective communities to build partnerships and leverage resources to help drive long-lasting community change. Each individual entity is independently incorporated, led by local staff and volunteers, and sets its priorities in response to local community needs.
100 percent of your donated money is invested exclusively in the Treasure Valley, to improve the lives of local individuals and families.
Not every nonprofit organization appeals to every donor, but all agencies have met the meticulous standards of United Way of Treasure Valley. However, you can choose to designate donations to any nonprofit agency that fits your needs.
United Way of Treasure Valley is not affiliated with the NFL. However, on a national level, for more than 35 years the NFL has worked with United Way to strengthen America’s communities.
United Way of Treasure Valley will not sell, share or trade our donors’ names or personal information with any other entity, nor send mailings to our donors on behalf of other organizations.

At United Way of Treasure Valley, we are devoted to fiscal responsibility amid our efforts to engage and mobilize the community to address common local challenges.

United Way of Treasure Valley funds local projects three ways:
Multi-year funding for collective impact partnerships that foster shared visions.
Program funding for individual organizations to support solutions that address community need in the areas of education, financial independence and health.
