Mark Your Calendars for 11/29

You're invited to be part of #GivingTuesday Child holding United Way bagon November 29th – a global movement dedicated to giving back and celebrating generosity! Join United Way of Northern Nevada and the Sierra (UWNNS) by investing in our youngest learners and the future of our community.  

In Nevada, less than 50% of children are reading at grade level by the end of third grade.

Reading proficiency by the end of third grade is one of the earliest indicators of high school graduation and overall success in life.

These children are the future of our community, and they need our help.


No matter how big or small your gift may seem, your gift will help UWNNS provide direct programs and services like:

  • United Readers - which places AmeriCorps mentors to provide one-on-one and small group literacy skill building.
  • Nevada Ready! State Pre-K - which provides children the opportunity to attend preschool at no cost to the families.
  • Increasing access to books by distributing brand new, age-appropriate books to children.


Your gift will change lives right here in northern Nevada. Make an early gift today!

$25 can provide 5 new books to children in northern Nevada.

$70 can provide 10 deliveries of essential goods and food through our Ride United: Last Mile Delivery Program.

$500 provides one year of one-on-one or small group mentoring for a child.

We’ll be celebrating all the way up until Tuesday, November 29th! Follow us on FacebookInstagramTwitter, and LinkedIn to find out how you can be part of the #GivingTuesday movement.
