More Benefits from Your Local United Way

Grants: Like other United Way organizations nationwide, we collect donations from community members -- in the form of payroll deductions, business employee-matching or lump-sum donations, and individual and family donations -- and distribute the pooled funds each year in the form of grants to worthy local nonprofits. Contributions raised in our fall campaign are distributed the following year. A volunteer group of local citizens reviews agency grant requests and determines the level of support to each local organization that applied for funds. Information is disseminated to the public through local media outlets and via this website.

Prescription Discounts: United Way offers local residents the opportunity to save money on prescription medications by obtaining and using a free FamilyWize prescription discount card. To learn more about this program, click this link or the orange FamilyWize card below.

Referrals: United Way of Garfield County is a active participant in Colorado's statewide 2-1-1 information and assistance program. More information about the 2-1-1 Program here in Western Colorado can be found by clicking this link or the 2-1-1 logo below.
