United Way of Salt Lake serves individuals and families in Davis, Salt Lake, Summit, and Tooele counties. This four-county area represents approximately 1.4 million people or about 52 percent of Utah's population.
For over 100 years, United Way of Salt Lake has served and strengthened the greater Salt Lake community. Established in 1904 as the Salt Lake Charity Association, its original mission was to help the poor, discourage panhandling, and coordinate the multiple programs. The historic "community chest" with a broad charitable mission has transformed into an agent for social change focused on Collective Impact--bringing partners together in new and innovative ways to identify problems and develop lasting solutions.
