Community Investments

Each year, United Way of Treasure Valley collects donations to the Community Fund. All donations to the Community Fund stay local in the Treasure Valley.

Nonprofit organizations are encouraged to apply for United Way grant funding. Through a rigorous application process with the Vision Councils and Board of Directors, aimed to ensure goal alignment with United Way’s Community Assessment, United Way awards grants to support specific programs at local nonprofits.

United Way’s volunteer Vision Council members develop objectives and strategies to address defined visions and target issues, make funding recommendations to the United Way Board of Directors and monitor progress toward identified objectives in alignment with United Way of Treasure Valley’s Community Impact Plan.

These dedicated members represent the community at large to help shape, inform and guide the community impact in the areas of Education, Health and Financial Stability.
