More than 22,000 donors & volunteers work together with local non profits with the goal to advance the common good in the areas of Education, Income and Health.

Local volunteers from across six regions commit more than 6,000 hours annually to the funding decision process. Granite United Way is only United Way in New England to hold both the Gold Level rating from GuideStar and rated a 4-Star Charity by Charity Navigator.
