Mission: To cultivate and mobilize community resources to change and save lives.
Vision: We lead the community to meet the needs of those in need.
Since 1958, United Way has served as the local philanthropic leader for health and human services in Fort Collins, Loveland, Berthoud, Estes Park, and the surrounding communities in Larimer County.
United Way has invested millions of dollars thousands of donors to serve thousands of people throughout the county. Without the generosity of our community, none of this would have been possible.
In the nearly 60 years of United Way's presence in Larimer County, the needs of the community have evolved. Through collaboration with local nonprofits, community members and the corporate sector, we have identified youth & education and financial stability in Larimer County to be our most important community issues. Working closely with our Collective Impact Partners has been and will continue to be the way to best address complex issues facing Larimer County.
"United Way is on the cutting edge of community innovation, creating new ways for local nonprofits and other partners to work together collectively to solve critical issues efficiently and effectively. We could not be more pleased to be part of this creative and ground-breaking work, and are honored to be a United Way partner."

"We have been regular donors to United Way for many decades because of the effective and responsible way that United Way mobilizes community resources to address community needs and to improve lives. We know that United Way makes Larimer County a better place for all of us and gladly support it."
