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.
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.
Back to School Supply Drive Volunteer Opportunity
It’s that time of year again! Pikes Peak United Way has teamed up with KKTV 11 News and King Soopers to make sure children are prepared when they start the school year! We need your help to sort the supplies collected! Join us to sort and stuff backpacks on August 8th. In the meantime, drop off new school supplies at your local King Soopers July 8th-August 2nd. Thank you!
This year’s Backpack Bash event is the first of it’s kind in our community! Nonprofits, churches and local businesses came together to make sure all local children are ready for their first day of school! This FREE community event is shaping up to be something you don’t want to miss out on! The Backpack Bash will provide hope to families in need.
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.
