Help Us Support the Community We Love
How can you ensure that your donated dollars to our community are well spent? How do you know where the greatest need is? Our all-volunteer board of directors will do the work to find the best home for your kind gifts through a rigorous grant review process and diligent results accounting. Instead of duplicating services, we are supporting the work done by agencies already established.
The United Way of Eagle River Valley seeks to harness, leverage and strategically invest in the collective power of donors, charities, advocates and volunteers, to drive measurable and long lasting results that improve the education, income stability and health of people in our region.
Your grant to our United Way is funneled directly into programs that deliver real results. With just one part-time staff member, an all-volunteer board, no offices and some in-kind services donated by local businesses, we are able to keep our administrative costs very low, therefore granting as much raised as possible. Currently, our Donor revenues total ~$150,000 per year with expenses of ~$20,000 per year and 99¢ out of every new $1 donation received goes directly to supported agencies and programs!
In addition, many of these agencies will apply for federal or other national grants and having the United Way on their roster of grantors is beneficial to their request. Based on the current needs of Eagle County, we fund agencies in three categories:
- Helping Families Meet Basic Needs
- Improving Access to Health Care
- Youth & Education Programs
Please consider the United Way of Eagle River Valley for your tax deductible contribution this year. Your generous donation is a powerful way to support those who support our community.
