About

For nearly 100 years, we have united the community to help people live better, safer and more successful lives. While our work has evolved to meet the challenges of the day, our vision remains the same: We believe everyone should have access to the tools and opportunities that empower them to achieve their full potential.

United Way of Greenville County

Through collaboration, innovation, volunteerism and strategic investment, we are achieving results. Because of the community’s generous support of United Way, more of our neighbors have access to basic needs like food, housing and healthcare; more students are graduating high school; and more people are trained and hired for self-sustaining jobs, creating greater economic mobility for individuals and families in Greenville County.
No single person, partner or program can solve the tough challenges we face in Greenville County. But by gathering diverse voices around the table and uniting donors, volunteers, corporate and nonprofit partners, we can make the change we want to see. And it’s in this unity that we remain committed and focused on building a stronger, more equitable Greenville County for all.

Anti-Racist Statement

We recognize structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities, which United Way seeks to dismantle. We strive to engage all community members, especially those that have been marginalized. We work with residents, and public and private partners to co-create solutions that ensure everyone has the resources, support, opportunities and networks they need to thrive. We commit to leveraging all of our assets (convening, strategic investments, awareness building and advocacy) to create more equitable communities.

United Way is committed to leading the fight for the health, education and financial stability of every person in our community — and that means fighting for equity. We continue to share tools and resources designed to support the work of United Way.

Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Statement

United Way of Greenville County is committed to valuing, understanding, accepting and celebrating all people. Together, we will authentically demonstrate and model the principles of diversity and inclusion which enriches all communities.

We believe our continued success depends on the full and effective utilization of diverse, qualified employees and volunteers by providing equal opportunity in every aspect of the organization without regard to race, color, creed, religion, gender, national origin, immigration status, physical ability, age, marital status, military status, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, public assistance status or any other classification protected by federal, state or local legislation.
