SPOKANE COUNTY UNITED WAY FIGHTS FOR THE HEALTH, EDUCATION AND FINANCIAL STABILITY OF EVERY PERSON IN OUR COMMUNITY.

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 Volunteer Spokane.  Spokane County United Way receives funding from foundations, companies, and individual donors. 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.   Spokane County United Way views its grantees as partners in addressing complex social needs and looks for funding opportunities that build capacity, improve systems, and are innovative to solve our community’s most critical problems.
