Welcome to the San Juan United Way

San Juan United Way

Welcomes Cathryn Abeyta as new Executive Director

Cathryn Abeyta is an active member of this community, serving on a number of committees and boards, and most recently reappointed to the City of Farmington's Community Relations Commission. She is a dedicated public servant throughout the Four Corners where her nonprofit work has been heavily influenced by the hardships experienced by people living in poverty in and around the Navajo Nation, especially Veterans and victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

She brought a national spotlight to the giving nature of our community in 2014 when the San Juan County Bar Association was awarded her the prestigious Harrison Tweed Award for efforts in delivering free legal services to low income people through the pro bono program she expanded and managed for legal aid.

Cathryn's passion for working with human service agencies has led her to develop and execute innovative collaborations and services to the most vulnerable in our communities. As a trained nonprofit fundraiser, she has also been able to bring in outside funding to many of the projects she has been involved with to sustain efforts in this community.

Victory Celebration


Thank you San Juan County for Being a Link in the Chain of Giving!

This year's Victory Celebration was held on March 10th at the Courtyard by Marriott.

BHP Billiton recieved a GIVE Excellence award, raising over $800,000 with their employee campaign with a 2 for 1 match. The individuals at BHP give back to the community with open hearts, love and concern for our 4 corners home.

ConocoPhillips recieved a VOLUNTEER Excellence award for their generosity. ConocoPhillips and their employees had innovated ideas to engage not only their employees but the community as well. ConocoPhillips conducted many special events including an auction, car show, chili cook off and a glow run.

APS revcieved an ADVOCATE Excellence Award. APS has an Employee Campaign Team that is continually looking at new ways to involve their peers. Not only do they recruit, support and recognize the largest number of leadership givers (individuals who donate $1000 or More) in San Juan County, but they want to educate others on the social problems within our community. APS is also a consistent supporter of loaned executive program.

Thanks to all of the Corporate Cornerstone Companies, they make it possible to raise the much needed campaign dollars – these companies provide the funds for our cooperating costs, which means to you and every other donor-that your donations go into the charities that are working directly with clients—Making a Difference in their lives and of our community.
