Community Grants

United Way St. Croix Valley funds approximately 45 nonprofit agency programs in the areas of education, financial stability and health in Pierce, Polk and St. Croix counties, as well as parts of Burnett and Washburn counties. Although we are making strides in all of our supported communities, there is still much work to be done--as many as 33% of people in the St. Croix Valley are not able to make ends meet--and we can't do it without your support.
