United Way of Thurston County partners with organizations that share our mission that the way to improve lives is by mobilizing the caring power of communities. Their long-term commitments are essential to addressing key social issues, such as helping children achieve through education, promoting family stability and providing for people’s basic needs.
When we reach out a hand to one, we influence the condition of all, and the benefits ripple out to everyone in the community.
United Way of Thurston County funds Health, Education and Human Service nonprofit 501c(3) agencies’ programs that meet the needs of citizens within the boundaries of Thurston County. The programs we support are grouped into three Community Impact Areas: Health, Education and Financial Stability. United Way is interested in partnering with the most efficient, effective and innovative service providers in Thurston County. Any organization seeking United Way funding must demonstrate the ability to operate programs consistent with the highest quality standards, including compliance with United Way management and financial requirements. For UWTC to solicit contributions and/or pledges on behalf of any agency or group of agencies during a campaign, United Way must be able to assure donors that certain requirements have been met. It is the responsibility of United Way to provide and/or conduct an annual documentation audit substantiating these assurances.
