In July the Woodland United Way and United Way California Capital Region completed a merger of the two organizations.  Both organizations have a long history in the region. The United Way California Capital Region has operated since 1923, while the Woodland United Way was established in 1968.The combined organization serves communities in Sacramento, Placer, El Dorado, Amador, and Yolo counties.

The belief is that the benefit of the merger is there will be more capacity to get out into the community and really connect with donors and with United Way partners who are helping do the impactful work.

The United Way’s Merger Committee is the recipient of the United Way’s Boje and Price Award. This award, named for longtime volunteers Dick Boje and Sterling Price, is given to those who have demonstrated community leadership by garnering the support of other volunteers to enhance the mission of United Way. The United Way thanks the merger committee members Mike Jansen, Kris Kristensen, Ruth Miller, George Myers, Carolyn Turpin, Mark Ullrich, and Dave Wilson for their dedication over 18 months to shepherd the Woodland United Way merger to its successful conclusion.

Dave Wilson has been on the United Way Board since 1987, having served as Board Chair, Treasurer (Twice) and in many other positions on committees and sub-committees. He came to Sacramento in 1981, and joined Grant Bennett Associates in 1991. He is one of Grant Bennett Associates partners, which makes us very proud that he received the Boje and Price Award for outstanding volunteerism.
