Corporate Connection

COMMUNITY INVESTMENTS

United Way is uniquely positioned to help employers create economic value that also adds social value. It’s called shared value, with a central premise that a company’s competitiveness and the health of the communities around it are interdependent. Like you, we believe strong communities are important to corporate success. By giving through United Way, you are assured your gift supports initiatives and programs focused on Education, Health, Income and Community Leadership. 

70+ companies partner with United Way of Northern Utah because we have a proven track record of large-scale impact and continuous innovation. We’ve been “the glue” of the community for over 65 years, but we’re using new ways to build stronger communities. We work closely with top corporate, government, and community influencers on critical community issues to improve conditions for business success. 

A core part of United Way of Northern Utah’s work is fundraising and distributing resources back into the community to create positive change. Historically, most United Ways accomplish this through a traditional allocations process that distributes money to community-based organizations that provide direct services and support to residents that address community needs. In the past decade, United Way of Northern Utah has shifted to an impact model to achieve greater impact than could be realized through direct services alone. 

In a community impact-driven model, United Way of Northern Utah strategically distributes resources in the community based on established shared community goals, issue priorities, and specific strategies. Also, funded entities are increasingly expected to report on results, often against common impact measures developed by us with community partners. In addition to making more strategic investments in the community,we employ additional strategies to accomplish goals, including policy and advocacy, convening, community engagement, local capacity building, and leading cross-sector partnerships.

We invite you to solidify and grow your reputation as a corporate leader through visible participation and/or leadership in initiatives that are big and bold. 

If there’s a cause that’s important to you, we can put a program together to help you address it.  We can help you reduce the administrative burden of managing corporate giving programs by simplifying your processes. Empower your teams to focus more on amplifying your giving impact in communities, and less on managing the process.
