Strategic Investment Grants
Mile High United Way UNITES the full force of Metro Denver, because we know one organization alone can’t solve our community’s largest problems, but together we can. Our Strategic Investment Grants are just one of many ways Mile High United Way invests in the community to change the odds for individuals and families.
What are the Mile High United Way Strategic Investment Grants?
Mile High United Way’s Strategic Investment Grants provide funding to high-performing organizations in Metro Denver who are implementing strategies directly aligned with our four Community Impact Goals and are serving geographically and culturally diverse communities. These grants are just one of many ways Mile High United Way invests in the community.
Who is receiving the grants?
Mile High United Way Board and staff are proud to be partnering with 82 outstanding Metro Denver organizations through Strategic Investment Grants.
What was the selection process?
Grantees were determined through a rigorous community selection process. We are grateful for the 132 volunteers - including stakeholders, donors, and subject-matter experts – who came together to review nearly 200 proposals requesting almost $16 million.
What are Mile High United Way's Community Impact Goals?
Mile High United Way is changing the odds for children, families, and individuals in Metro Denver through four inter-connected, multi-generational Community Impact Goals, ensuring:
- Children enter school ready to succeed
- Children are reading at or above grade level by the end of third grade
- Youth graduate from high school ready for post-secondary education and entry into the workforce
- Individuals and families can meet their basic needs and are afforded every opportunity to move toward economic success
