Since 2013, The Boldt Company has been a strong campaign partner with United Way.
Join United Way in keeping kids on track. Help us launch literacy with our online tutoring program - STARS (Students & Teachers Achieving Reading Success).
Showing your support is as easy as 1-2-3:
If kids aren’t reading at grade level by 4th grade, they will have a hard time keeping up across multiple subjects for years to come. Having a consistent positive adult role model, like a tutor, can improve children’s confidence and performance in all school subjects.
United Way California Capital Region is partnering with BookNook to provide virtual literacy tutoring to students in need of support. Volunteer to lend your support as a virtual tutor. Volunteers are asked to commit to 3 months of consistent virtual tutoring (at least 1 hour a week, split into 2 30-minute sessions).
Standing United for Inclusion and Equity
United Way California Capital Region Statement on Racism and Injustice
People across the country are expressing their outrage for the killing of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, Tony McDade, and too many more.
Our United Way shares these feelings of sadness and outrage toward racial violence and injustice in our country. We are also asking ourselves how we can make a difference during this difficult time. If we are committed to building stronger, healthier, and more compassionate communities, then we must channel our justifiable outrage to collaborative action.
We must stand united for justice.
Square One Project
United Way’s Women United raises funds to help foster youth prepare to be self-sufficient once they leave the foster care system. Our local United Way’s foster youth program includes case management, life skills training and financial support through the Individual Development Account (IDA) program.
Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) are matched savings accounts that help cover basic necessities and education-related expenses for emancipated foster youth.
