Living United in Sherburne County

Sherburne County Area United Way (SCAUW) unites people and resources to create a better life for everyone in our communities – Big Lake, Elk River, Otsego, Princeton, Santiago and Zimmerman – by focusing on three key areas:

  • Education
  • Income
  • Health

Through focusing on these three areas, SCAUW is able to provide opportunities that inspire individuals, engage communities, and build brighter futures. This helps us achieve long-lasting changes in our service area!
