United Way starts at Square One.
We believe creating stronger, healthier and more compassionate communities starts at Square One: Helping every family succeed so their community can too. Families know what they need to thrive. We are their partners on that path, connecting them with resources to restore, heal and achieve their goals. 

A legacy of convening. For close to 100 years, United Way California Capital Region has brought local people together to make community change happen. Serving Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento and Yolo counties, your local United Way is working to significantly reduce poverty in the region by helping kids excel in school, investing in families, creating meaningful partnerships and organizing to lift impacted families. 

Our path forward.
United Way California Capital Region is now working on an even larger scale to help families heal and meet our 20-year promise to significantly reduce poverty in the Capital Region. We are laying solid steppingstones on our path to help every family thrive and build a healthy community. This work is even more important than ever as the pandemic weakened our communities and exacerbated injustices. 

Join us! Make a donation, sign up to volunteer, or tell others about the exciting work that happens through your local United Way.


United Way California Capital Region's mission is to build stronger, healthier and more compassionate communities. We are dedicated to improving the lives of families and children in the Amador, El Dorado, Placer, Sacramento, and Yolo counties.


Ending poverty begins in school, ensuring all students receive the support they need to graduate and succeed.

By intervening early, we can disrupt cycles of poverty and implement true systemic change.

Research shows that students who are not proficient in reading by the end of 3rd grade falter in later grades and often drop out before earning a high school diploma. Those dropping out of high school are 63 times more likely to end up in the criminal justice system. A quality education helps children develop social, emotional and cognitive skills that will lead to them earning higher incomes later in life.

Many students have fallen even further behind after nearly two years of distance learning. Now, more than ever, students, especially those in low-income communities, need our support to maintain their educational growth.
