Community Investments

United Way of Treasure Valley Investments at Work!

Each year, United Way of Treasure Valley unites donations from the community into a Community Fund. All donations to the Community Fund are locally invested into the most needed education, health, and financial stability programs in the Treasure Valley (Community Investments).

Find partner organizations impacted by our work:

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for funding through the United Way of Treasure Valley Community Fund. Applicants will participate in a rigorous application process to determine alignment with United Way of Treasure Valley's goals and strategies. Volunteer Vision Council members ensure goal alignment of applicants and make funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors. These dedicated members (Vision Councils and Board of Directors) represent the community at large to help shape, inform and guide the community impact in the areas of Education, Health and Financial Stability.
