United Way of Pueblo County exists to develop donor resources to enhance the quality of life for the people of Pueblo County. United Way of Pueblo County is autonomous, directing our own course based on community needs and the direction given by our governing board. The spirit of philanthropic giving began in Pueblo in 1923 when community leaders raised $105,000 by going door-to-door. It was known first as the Community Chest, then the United Fund and now, United Way. While the name changed, the mission remained constant--to raise funds whereby donors could give to a single effort and help support the array of needed and critical services in our community.
