Providing Hope

Beaufort County United Way is making a difference in people’s lives. Working with you and many community partners, including local nonprofits and agencies, we identify the needs of our community and prioritize how we invest resources to create lasting positive change.

With our combined caring power, we find solutions that restore hope and confidence to Building a Stronger Community .

Through United Way, we:

  • build support to ensure that students stay in school to complete their education
  • enable families to have access to resources for building skills and healthy living
  • help our most vulnerable, including children, veterans and seniors, with food and housing security

A strong community is one where everyone has the opportunity to achieve their goals. Thanks to your investment through United Way, we are making progress!

Our Mission

Our mission is as simple: Building a Stronger Community. It's amazing how the smallest act of kindness to one person can produce incredible results for us all. We believe in the power of community and remain committed to helping build a community that cares.

To do this, the Beaufort County United Way coordinates community outreach efforts by facilitating financial giving, promoting volunteerism and working with health and human services providers to make a difference in the lives of those who call Beaufort County home.
