The Yuba-Sutter-Colusa United Way is committed to creating long-lasting changes with measurable improvements for people in need within our three-county area (Yuba, Sutter and Colusa) by focusing our efforts on building blocks for a better life.

As part of that commitment, Yuba-Sutter-Colusa United Way invests in high-performing non-profit organizations that provide programs and services that align with our strategic priorities/impact areas in three ways:

  • Allocations: Funds are allocated annually to Yuba-Sutter-Colusa United Way Partner Agencies through the Citizen’s Review and Allocations Process.
  • Direct Targeted Investments: These investments are funds designated by donors to specific 501(c)3 non-profit organizations located anywhere.
  • Community Impact Grants: These grants are directed toward high quality local programs that benefit the citizens of Yuba, Sutter and Colusa counties.  Funding is granted to any non-profit 501 (c) organization through a competitive application process each year. The current round of funding is directed to programs serving youth, the aging population and community homelessness.

We will help others to create long-lasting changes in our community by adhering to the following strategic priorities:

  • Enhancing Educational Opportunities
  • Enhancing Income
  • Improving the Health of Our Residents

To achieve our strategic priorities, through our Community Impact Grants and other efforts, we will focus our efforts on:

  • Healthier Opportunities for Children
  • Community Homelessness
  • Our Aging Population
