Who is United Way of Spokane County?

United Way of Spokane County is the catalyst for unlocking a brighter future for our community.

At United Way of Spokane, our mission is to enhance the well-being and opportunities for every individual in our community. We achieve this by harnessing expertise, funding, and volunteer support to make positive strides in education, financial stability, and healthcare.

As an independent non-profit organization, we are governed by a local board of directors. This autonomy allows us to tailor our programs and initiatives to the unique needs of our community.

We further extend our support to local businesses, assisting them in running annual fundraising campaigns that generate crucial financial backing for their community initiatives.

Together with individuals, businesses, and governmental agencies, we raise funds and cultivate civic-minded momentum. These collective endeavors directly bolster community needs, underpin programs and services, and address essential local requirements, including education, financial prosperity, physical and mental well-being, and fundamental necessities.

Collaboration is at the heart of United Way. We work closely with a diverse array of local nonprofits, government agencies, and businesses to maximize the impact of our collective endeavors. We excel at building a robust network of partners to effectively address community challenges.


At United Way, we believe in a multifaceted approach. Donations provide resource allocation, volunteerism puts those resources into action, and community engagement advocates for needs, offers solutions, and maintains awareness. Through this three-step approach, United Way of Spokane County has been making a meaningful impact for over 120 years.

Education Focus

Quality education is the foundation of success, yet millions of children lack the support needed for literacy, school success, graduation, and career development.


Income Focus

Persistent joblessness, limited financial knowledge, and homelessness are challenges experienced by individuals and families in our community, hindering their ability to enjoy a high quality of life.


Health Focus

Accessing health services should never be hindered by one's zip code, nor should it impede progress towards better health. Unfortunately, research indicates that, for many, this is a daily reality.



Volunteering has the power to transform lives, strengthen communities, and create a brighter future for all.
