United Way of SLO County has found itself rapidly adjusting to the changes that the global COVID-19 pandemic has brought – and will continue to bring – to our community and organization. Our primary areas of focus are education, income/financial stability and health. These areas are exactly what we find our community is most concerned with as we begin to find ways to adapt and thrive within these rapidly changing times.
For more than 60 years, we have maintained a Community Impact Fund. This fund allows us to ensure that we can sustain our ability to meet existing and emerging needs. Please consider donating to this fund so that we can continue to do the work that our community needs during these difficult times.
Here is a link to the website for more information about the Community Impact Fund.
