Leadership Giving

Every movement needs leaders. Throughout our 20-year commitment to the Square One Project, we seek benefactors who will set the tone for others and establish the significance of the need in our community. When you invest $1,000 or more in the work of United Way California Capital Region, you lead by example and ensure that together we have the momentum to reach our goals. Your commitment and generosity serve as motivation and inspiration for donors, volunteers and advocates across our region.


Workplace Giving Campaigns

Is your company interested in giving back to the community in an easy and fun way? Participating in a United Way workplace campaign gives your organization and your employees the opportunity to learn about our community’s needs and a convenient way to make a difference. You can join with other businesses across Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties to help improve lives in our community.


Women United
A Network of Women Taking Action

Women United (WU) is the California Capital region’s premier women’s group based on the recognition of women as a powerful philanthropic force. This dedicated group is grounded in the idea that addressing the most critical needs of our local foster youth community will enrich the entire community as a whole and creates a better life for us all.
