Cheers to 60 years!
Sixty years ago, a group of community leaders gathered because they wanted to do something more for our community. Before United Way of Yellowstone County existed, there were two important organizations that served as the foundation and inspiration: The Billings Community Chest and United Neighbors of Greater Billings.
Over the course of six decades, United Way of Yellowstone County has invested more than $47 million to our community in the form of allocations, designations, grants, and most recently, immediate need grants in response to COVID-19.
The impact we’ve made together—and will continue to make for generations to come—is a reflection of the strength of our partnerships and our dedication to making a positive impact on every person who lives, works, and plays in Yellowstone County. Our priority areas—crisis stability, school readiness and success, and senior independence—stand strong because of you.
Our 60th Birthday Blowout celebration is for our community: the people who’ve given their time, talent, and treasure to ensure United Way has thrived; the people who’ve benefited from the grants that have been awarded to our partner agencies; and the people whose philanthropic intent have funded our initiatives. Without those individuals, families, organizations, and corporations, the United Way of Yellowstone County would not have become what it is today.
Thank you for partnering with us, for supporting us, and for believing in our mission and in our community. Here’s to the next 60!
