Volunteers change lives in our community. They willingly share their time and talents as tutors, mentors, fundraisers, and more.Volunteer Today
We’re creating long-term change by harnessing the power of nonprofits, government, corporations, and thousands of individuals to work together and solve the most difficult problems we face as a community.More About Us
Poverty, poor health, and lagging educational achievement are not distant issues. They exist right here along the Wasatch Front.
We are changing the way people and organizations work together to fix social problems. We start by building partnerships with a shared vision of what's possible.
Nour came to Salt Lake as a refugee from Syria. Through the programs at Cottonwood High School, such as the Mentor 2.0 program, she graduated high school and is on track to go to college.
Adriana immigrated from Mexico in search of opportunity and changed the odds for herself and her family through services available at Guadalupe School.
Priscilla came to the United States as a refugee from Burma and, with help from a United Way volunteer, she’s now soaring to new heights.
Our goals go way beyond short-term charity for a few. Our measures of success show impact for entire schools and entire communities. Lasting change starts by building powerful partnerships around shared goals that impact every child and every family in our community.
Since 2011, we've seen problems improve. Schools in some of the poorest communities are outperforming schools in more affluent neighborhoods, health is improving, and crime is decreasing. Change at this scale is possible when we work together!

We believe that no problem is so big that we can’t solve it together, but it takes all of us: fundraisers, handraisers, changemakers, partners, and YOU to create lasting change.
