United Way pumps $7 million into school readiness, etc.

Mile High United Way is pumping $7 million into 117 local nonprofit partnerships with the goal of creating “measurable change” in the areas of school readiness, youth success and adult self-sufficiency.“Thanks to the enormous generosity of our donors and volunteers, and the exceptional work of these nonprofits, more children will enter school prepared to succeed, more young people will graduate high school ready for college or work, and more individuals and families will reach economic self-sufficiency,” said Christine Benero, Mile High United Way president and CEO, in a statement.

The awards are part of the organization’s “impact investment portfolio,” which targets both existing programs as well as newer organizations that the United Way believes are innovating around its areas of focus.

Mile High United Way also announced plans to renew this year’s impact investment awards for two more years to create a total investment of $21 million over three years, contingent on grantee success and available funding.

A list of the 2013 impact investment partners is available by clicking here and also available online.
