MC2026 is a direct result of a year-long, community engagement and input process. This 5-Year Impact Plan is a new direction for Valley of the Sun United Way’s work that expands beyond our traditional grant-making role and includes new opportunities for Valley of the Sun United Way to drive community change. Through this process, we repeatedly heard that our organization must work with government, business, education, and nonprofit sectors to achieve the critical short-term and long-term strategies to achieve bold aspirational community-level goals in the areas of Health & Food Access, Housing & Homelessness, Education, and Workforce Development.
>>> Beginning Wednesday, September 1, 2021, Valley of the Sun United Way will open the Request for Proposal (RFP) process. This funding cycle’s area of focus is Workforce Development.
