ABOUT US

Building Strong Families • Increasing Self-Reliance • Promoting Health

Founded in 1959 in Grand Junction, Colorado, United Way of Mesa County (UWMC) is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that raises money from the community to fund programs that address community concerns. UWMC is one of more than 1,300 community-based United Way organizations. Each is independent, separately incorporated, and governed by local volunteers.

Our work is focused on these building blocks for a good life:

  • Education – Supporting parents and early childhood development
  • Income – Promoting financial stability and independence
  • Health – Improving people’s physical and mental health

UWMC brings our community together to focus on its most important needs while building partnerships, forging consensus and leveraging resources to make a measurable difference. We provide leadership and resources that unite people in building a strong and compassionate community that responds to human needs. We foster cooperation among community agencies, business and governmental sectors in an effort to encourage a balanced network of services for people in our community.

Throughout the year, UWMC moni­tors funded programs to make sure outcomes are achieved. We also provide on-going technical assistance to nonprofits, and help fund Western Colorado 2-1-1, an information and referral resource where people can both get and give help.  And to top it off, UWMC makes it easy for everyone to get involved.

Mission/Vision Statement

The mission of UWMC is to meet human service needs through excellent stewardship of resources entrusted by the community. We strive to create a community of philanthropists, identify current and emerging human service needs in our community, and support effective agencies to fully meet those needs.
