Giving Tuesday 2020

Giving Tuesday is a global movement that unleashes the power of people and organizations to transform their communities and the world.  Tomorrow is on the horizon, full of questions and unknowns. It is up to us how we answer. Starting today we can respond with hope, with possibility, with action. We can speak up, raise our hands, give back. We can rebuild our communities so they are better, more equitable, more resilient. And we can reimagine a tomorrow that is better than yesterday. But a new tomorrow can’t be reached alone. To get there, starting today we must LIVE UNITED.

UNITED WE WIN

Providing Solutions During COVID-19 UWYC Launches Live United, Get Connected

Education. Financial stability. Health. The pillars of the United Way remain strong and steady during the COVID-19 pandemic. In fact, the United Way of Yavapai County sprang into action as the virus triggered a huge increase in demand for essential services. More than 20 community partners across the county have received emergency funds to provide food, shelter, catch-up learning, daycare and more. 


Thinking about her own children and the huge changes in education they and their friends are experiencing, UWYC’s Finance Manager, Nina Seim, recently wondered how the schools would manage the transition to distance learning. That led to a call between longtime education professional and UWYC board member, JoAnne Hilde and Stan Gologoski, Executive Director of the Yavapai County Educational Technology Consortium. They discussed how United Way could help the schools to provide computers, and even more importantly, Internet access. 

 

With the start of school upon them, UWYC moved quickly to provide more than 50 hotspots and yearlong service contracts to the consortium. School districts across the county received them this week, just in time for the first day of school! 


Director Goligoski shared that even with the consortium’s purchases and UWYC’s gift, there still is a great need for laptops and hotspots to ensure all students are able to participate fully in classes. As much as $150,000 is needed to provide enough equipment to the 26 school districts and 24 charter schools in our county.
