United Way of Lane County Funded Programs 2016-2017

United Way of Lane County is pleased to be working with the following funded partner programs in our community. Working together with these innovative programs helps to create opportunites for a better life for all and moves us closer to our goal a thriving community. Please click here for a PDF version of this list.

Note: For this funding cycle, United Way of Lane County has recognized that a child cannot succeed in school if they do not have a safe home environment, a family cannot create a budget if they are struggling to put food on the table, and a person cannot focus on preventative health if the do not have access to basic healthcare. With this realization, we have intentionally incorporated basic needs into our three focus areas of Education, Income, and Health.


United Way of Lane County’s early learning and education efforts are focused on ensuring that children are prepared for success in kindergarten and beyond, that families are stable and attached, and that services are coordinated into an effective system that meets the needs of families with young children.

This work is carried out by providing backbone support to groups like the Early Learning Alliance and LaneKids, as well as funding partner programs pivotal to the success of children and families.
