What's Happening at United Way:

The 2015/2016 United Way of Nevada County Campaign is currently wrapping up.  Many businesses and government agencies across the county participated in the United Way Workplace Giving Campaign for the campaign years 2015/2016.

Companies and government agencies hosted events such as Soup-a-thons, Friday Jeans Day, and used book sales to raise money for United Way of Nevada County. Along with these events many of these businesses and government agencies participated in the workplace giving payroll pledge campaign.  The money raised from these events and the payroll pledge process goes into the Community Investment Fund or are designated to specific 501(c)(3) Non-Profits.

United Way of Nevada County’s mission is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our community. UWNC strives to assure that individuals and families in Nevada County are able to meet their basic need for Food, Emergency Shelter and access to Health Care.
