    Generously Sponsored by: United Way

    United Way’s mission is to unite a network of nonprofits, local businesses, and community stakeholders to enable financial stability for every person in Whatcom County. Our focus is on individuals and families who struggle financially, specifically the ALICE (asset-limited, Income-Constrained, Employed) population in our community.

    We fund a comprehensive network of local nonprofits that provide basic needs like food, housing and mental health services, increase economic mobility through education, job skills and training, and help break the cycle of poverty by removing barriers like violence, abuse, and addiction that keep families from being successful from generation to generation. Our goal is to create a community where everyone has the tools and opportunities they need to achieve financial independence and stability.

    You may know United Way from your internal employee giving campaigns. Approximately 100 local companies participate in this effort every year.
