United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person, in every community.
Underneath everything we are,
underneath everything we do,
we are all people,
connected, interdependent, united,
and when we reach out a hand to one,
we influence the condition of all.
That’s what it means to
- United Way of Richland County is a local organization led by local people; Members of the Board of Directors and Allocation members are volunteers.
- United Way ensures that the funds you entrust to us are invested wisely in programs county wide. Our volunteer allocations teams review fundraising requests, conduct program site visits, evaluate program outcomes, and ensure community needs are being met. We monitor all dollars granted, year round, to ensure your dollars are impacting our community.
- You can designate a gift to one or several of United Way’s partner agencies, specific community needs or any other verifiable 501(c)3 organization.
- Our mission is to increase the capacity of Richland County citizens to care for one another by bringing together all elements of the community to plan, support, deliver and monitor quality human services.
