Why We Selected United Way
United Way of King County mobilizes our community in ways that no single agency, individual, or government can to enhance the ability of people to care for one another.
We do this by:
•Bringing together people for government, business, faith groups, nonprofits and the media, as well as ordinary citizens, to address critical issues such as school readiness and homelessness.
•Investing in programs that address a broad range of community challenges, with a particular focus on three priorities: meeting basic needs, ending homelessness and getting all children in King County ready to succeed in school.
•Encouraging people to contribute money and time to improve the community.
We deeply understand our community, its people and the challenges. Our staff and volunteers are continuously following social indicators, and documenting needs as they emerge and evolve. As compared with other nonprofits, including other United Ways, we are incredibly efficient: 96 cents of every donated dollar goes to meet community need (thanks, in part, to our Gates Endowment). We also make smart investments that make a differenceóand we insist on clear and measurable results from our grantees. For more information, please visit: www.uwkc.org.
