Upper Valley

Granite United Way’s Upper Valley Region is committed to strengthening our communities.

Our Upper Valley region covers communities in both New Hampshire and Vermont. In this region, our Community Impact Committee volunteers have targeted their investments in this region to address the needs of the low-income wage earner. They also continue to invest in initiatives and programs that focus on Education, Income, and Health.
