Our community is powered by

People just like you. People who work in offices, grocery stores and banks. People who donate $10 and people who donate 10 hours. Together, we are stronger than we realize.

Upcoming events

There are so many ways to plug in and help Colorado Springs thrive. Gather your friends, family and coworkers and join us in making serious impact, together.

Everyone has a part to play

At Pikes Peak United Way, we believe there is more that connects us than divides us. That’s why Live United is not just a slogan – it’s the vision of a community that believes we are stronger together than we ever could be apart.

We all know someone in need

Whether we realize it or not. Your next door neighbor may be struggling to put enough food on the table. Or your child’s teacher could be a few bills away from homelessness. Need does not discriminate – that’s why we’re here.

Those needs start at the root

We are fortunate to be part of a global United Way network – with resources and insight into “the big picture.” This insight tells us that access to education, healthy living, and financial stability lie at the root of our community’s needs. If we can tackle these initiatives, we know our impact will ripple through Colorado Springs.

Tackling root causes requires a network of nonprofits

We can’t do it alone. Our nonprofit partners are vital to helping every person find the support they need. Pikes Peak United Way acts as the hub – connecting those in need with the nonprofits and resources that can help them get back on their feet. This is only possible through the hard work and dedication of our nonprofit community.

An infinite network powered by you

In the face of so much need, making a difference can feel overwhelming. But what if each person gave just a little? Every gift powers a network of support infinitely larger than any one person. That’s what it means to Live United
