Our Mission and Vision

To help positively impact the needs of Florence County, we fund 30 programs through 22 local non-profits that are providing services in the education, youth, health, special needs, financial stability, and emergency service sectors. To fund these programs, we raise money through our annual campaign by holding company campaigns in local businesses, hosting fundraisers, and collecting individual donations. Beyond our work in fundraising, the United Way of Florence County also has the United Way 211 program to connect individuals in need with help, and the Volunteer Corps program for those interested in volunteering with non-profits. 

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement​

United Way of Florence County recognizes structural racism, ethnic discrimination and other forms of oppression have contributed to racial disparities that have existed in the past and persist in the present. We acknowledge those inequities are the result of policies and practices that work to marginalize entire populations of people. We unequivocally denounce racism/ethnic discrimination because it undermines the well-being and vitality of individuals and our community. 

United Way of Florence County seeks to dismantle disparities and strives to engage residents and community members, especially those whose voices have been marginalized, in the shared work of fortifying equity and empowerment. We value every person’s unique perspective and experience and strive to use input from others to advance our mission and our work for the education, health, and financial stability of every person in every community that we serve.
