United Way of Skagit County

Thank you for considering a donation

United Way of Skagit County operates and advocates to build a better Skagit for all residents. Aside from supporting various organizations around Skagit County, we also offer services and programs specifically aimed and reducing the poverty levels by starting early on in people’s lives. Our current bold goal is that by 2025, all Skagit children entering kindergarten are ready to learn!

Our hope is that by providing kids the needed support and learning opportunities early on in their lives that it will lead to better things later on, such as higher graduation rate. It has been shown that children in Skagit County ranked lower in kindergarten readiness when compared to neighboring counties along the I5 corridor.
