100 Years in Spokane County

100 Years of Trusted Giving

You create impact in Spokane County with your support of United Way.

Spokane County United Way has been serving our local community since 1921 and in the past 10 years alone, we have invested over $20 million dollars in grant funding to local organizations. In addition to grant funding, United Way coordinates the efforts of AmeriCorps VISTA, the Emergency Food and Shelter Program, Free Tax Preparation, Excelerate Success, and manages an online volunteer portal VolunteerSpokane.org. United Way fights to prevent homelessness for youth through the Anchor Community Initiative, and responds to veteran and chronic homelessness through work with Built For Zero.

100 Years of Partnerships

Our nonprofit community is essential and United Way continues to support over 30 local nonprofits that share our vision for our community, support our most vulnerable citizens, and create change. As a steward of donor funds, Spokane County United Way invests in community programs with sound financial practices that are aligned to create long-term impact for our community in the areas of health, education, and financial stability.
