Organization History

Mile High United Way, founded in Denver, in 1887, was the first United Way in the world.

We're a community that thinks a little differently about solving big problems.

Our original innovative spirit persists in our work, and in our hearts. We continue to boldly break new ground by bringing together local nonprofits, government agencies, businesses, and the most important piece, YOU.
