We celebrate your generosity, leadership, and the power of collective giving to create impact for our community.

"Philanthropy is almost the only virtue which is sufficiently appreciated by mankind."

-Henry David Thoreau


As generous supporters and leaders you create solutions and real change right here in Spokane County. Through your generosity, you have shown your passion for our community. This site is a space where we get to share your ongoing impact and provide updates on new initiatives and efforts to continuously make Spokane County the place where all of us can live, work, play, and spend time with our families.

What's new in April

April is Spokane Gives Month

Born from the commitment to building Spokane as the most compassionate City, former Mayor David Condon (2012-2019) began the Spokane Gives initiative in 2014 as a week-long volunteer event throughout the community. Today, Spokane County United Way partners with the City of Spokane throughout the entire month of April and serves as an expansion of the already impressive philanthropy in the community and works to build the network between volunteers and non-profits to promote giving and volunteer service year-round.

As part of Spokane Gives we, along with our partners at Premera, STCU, and The City of Spokane, granted 28 local nonprofits Spokane Gives Mini-Grants totaling $13,400 to support volunteer projects happening throughout April.
