A LIVE UNITED® Collaborative is a Foothills United Way Approved Partnership. Foothills United Way officially recognizes collaborative groups - nonprofits, government agencies, school districts, faith communities, businesses and other leaders - in our community that are dedicated to working with each other to solve some of the community's most pressing issues.
Groups that earn the LIVE UNITED® Collaborative status will be promoted by Foothills United Way in the community and on our website as models of partnered work.
Foothills United Way has described a Framework for High-Impact Community Initiatives. This Framework describes FIVE necessary elements for a community partnership to be most effective. Foothills United Way will assess whether the partnership aligns with the framework. Groups will be recognized as LIVE UNITED® Collaboratives if their work is consistent with each of these elements.
