Thank you for helping to end poverty starting in school
BIG Day of Giving was a HUGE Success

Thank you for giving BIG during this year’s Big Day of Giving.

Nearly $20,000 was raised in 24 hours! On behalf of the children and families that United Way impacts, THANK YOU!

With the support of Wells Fargo and their matching dollars, we were able to turn your donations into nearly $40,000. The best part – Wells Fargo – has generously agreed to donate the remaining $5,000 to United Way. That means we raised close to $45,000 in 24 hours!

Success Story

2016 YLS Winter Social: Brews & Brains
YPs raise more than $2,600 for students' health

Trivia, beer, and philanthropy made for a great night at United Way’s Young Leaders Society Brews & Brains fundraiser. More than 100 young professionals came out in support of the United Way’s Hydration Station Initiative – a project increasing access to drinking water at elementary schools in Sacramento’s Robla School District.

Thanks to passionate YPs, we raised $2,663 for the Hydration Station Initiative! The funding will be used to purchase and install additional hydration stations.

Thank you for supporting United Way’s Young Leaders Society and for giving students the opportunity to lead their healthiest lives, starting with hydration!

2015 United Way California Capital Region Impact Awards

United Way California Capital Region had a great 2015 as we made big strides to accomplish our goals in the areas of financial stability, health, and education. We cannot achieve these goals without the help of our generous supporters, donors, and volunteers.

United Way was very excited to honor these individuals and companies who’ve made it their mission to make a lasting impact in our local communities.
