Funded Partners

We engage local partners to strengthen our community.

Every program is a partnership grounded in data and measureable outcomes to ensure vitality over the short-term, and scalable over the long-term. We work with local parters to continually improve and expand our reach to ensure that our most vulnerable neighbors have the tools they need to succeed in life. 

Contributions to the Community Investment Fund are invested to help people gain that skills they need to to achieve self-sufficiency and to assure that more people can acces essential services. As a result of the generous and ongoing support of United Way supporters like you, we transform Santa Cruz County into a thriving community for all.
