United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra started in 1942 as the Reno-Sparks Community Chest. In 1969, the Community Chest changed its name to Washoe United Fund and in 1987, to United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS).
Today, our programs and partnerships throughout the community are designed to help make the fourth grade and beyond a literacy-fueled journey for our children. We work alongside many passionate volunteers and members of the community who share this commitment to successful early-age reading.
