Every day, United Way of North Idaho's dynamic team of volunteers and professionals work to make our communities one of promise and opportunity for all who live here. UWNI’s impact starts with leadership and our unique ability to bring businesses, government institutions, nonprofits and communities together in ways no one else can – because creating lasting changes takes all of us working together.
Board of Directors. The United Way of North Idaho Board of Directors recruits and selects individuals based on specific requirements. If you are interested in serving on the UWNI Board of Directors, we encourage you to reach out to a current board member.
Resource Development Committee. Help UWNI grow vital resources needed to fight for the health, education, and financial stability of ALICE families in North Idaho. Fundraising is done through workplace campaigns, individual project fundraising, grant writing, sponsorship, and events.
Community Impact Councils. Since 1957, our Community Impact Councils have helped the community understand unmet needs and evaluate funding requests. For more than 60 years our Impact Councils are still at the heart of our understanding and focus of the work we do. There are three impact councils: Education, Financial Stability, and Health.
