Every Step of the Way

Creating Equitable Communities
through Powerful Partnerships



United Way of Salt Lake’s core work focuses on the elimination of racial and economic disparity gaps in education and health outcomes. As we continue to recover from COVID-19 and its effects on our community and community members, we are committed to creating more equitable systems, providing every child and family access to education, financial stability,
a healthy life, and opportunities to succeed.

No single individual or organization can solve complex community problems alone. Real, lasting change requires that people, businesses, and systems work together to develop solutions and make a collective impact.

Promise Partnership

To solve the complex challenges facing our community, partners from across sectors must work together to address immediate needs and deliver long-term results. The Promise Partnership helps schools, government organizations, and communities align their goals to transform the education environment for Utah kids.
