About Us

Creating Opportunites for a Better Life for All

The United Way is a $5 billion global enterprise - recognized by 98% of all Americans - but organized and operated at a community level, making it accessible to you. We're big and we're small at the same time. Each United Way is independently governed by a local volunteer board, in order to best meet our local needs and opportunities. We must, however, adhere to a stringent set of membership standards that focus on governance, ethics, financial management and general operations.

The United Way of Florence County has been a cornerstone of the social service sector in Florence County for 65 years. In a nutshell, the United Way of Florence County brings together citizens, community leaders, business, the faith-based community, local government, non-profit organizations, and many more to ensure measurable results on issues that require collective, not just individual, actions are delivered. Why? Because everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a complete education, access to basic human needs, personal and professional growth, a positive childhood, a moment to breathe a sigh of relief. The United Way of Florence County is helping to create opportunities for a better life for all.

Last year, our federated fundraising efforts ensured that $822,086 worth of services were available in the health, income, education, youth, emergency, and special needs sectors of our community.

A gift to the United Way of Florence County is an investment in our community. With your continued support, we do what no single donor or agency can do alone.
