How we work
United Way has evolved from its roots as a fundraising organization to a critical community convener that mobilizes local partners, including businesses, community leaders, public officials, and community residents, to expand opportunities for people to succeed. These collaborations recognize the power of the collective: that organizations coming together around a common agenda – with shared goals, strategies, data, and guiding principles – are capable of achieving real and lasting population-level impact.
This is the collective impact model.
United Way California Capital Region is working closely with community partners on a number of Education, Financial Stability, and Health initiatives.
