of our community.

Be a part of your local United Way's efforts to improve lives in northern Nevada together.

Diversify Your Bookshelf

How diverse is your bookshelf? As summer approaches, it’s a great time to expand your horizons -- and the books that you and your kids are reading. We make it easy with our new Diversify Your Bookshelf activity.

Just register to get a reading list of age-appropriate authors and stories about people of color, touching on diversity, equity and inclusion. Our list includes a variety of books for kids from birth through 18, and for adults. The books are chosen and celebrated by parents, educators, experts, and readers from every region of the world. Click here to register.

During the next few weeks, we will be sharing videos across our site and social media on how individuals in our community Live United. Join in this celebration by making a video of your own telling us how YOU live United and share it with us! Tag us through #UWNNS or email a copy of the video to
