MESA COUNTY, Colo. — Today, United Way of Mesa County held their Campaign Celebration, sponsored by Bank of the San Juans, on Facebook Live. United Way of Mesa County is excited to announce that as of today, the 2019-20 community fundraising drive has raised $905,994. The money comes primarily from employee workplace donations, individual donations, and revenue from Home Loan Taste of the Grand Valley.
At United Way of Mesa County, we believe the caring power of the community can provide everyone the opportunity to reach their full potential.
United Way of Mesa County will keep the 2019-20 campaign open for pledges in order to maximize the funds available for allocation to health and human service programs that have applied for funding. This year, 25 nonprofit programs across Mesa County have applied for United Way funding. Individuals or businesses that have not yet contributed to this year’s campaign may still pledge online here or call 243-5364.
Over 40 community investment volunteers are reviewing the funding applications. These Community Investment panels will make site visits to all programs and then recommend funding amounts to United Way’s Board of Directors. United Way will make the final announcement about total campaign revenues and allocation funding in late spring.
The Spirit of Giving award winners are: River City Consultants, CSL Plasma, Networks Unlimited, HopeWest, Clifton Water District, FCI Constructors, Inc. and Markah Williams.
Special Recognition Award – 30 years of service: Lois Bell
