Corporate Giving

United Way of Greenville County’s corporate giving campaigns unite employees across all departments, offices or branches of a company, and give them an opportunity to donate, volunteer and learn more about Greenville County and the issues that matter to them.

A United Way campaign is about more than raising money for our work. It also deepens connections between employees and this amazing community, while supporting our vision of a Greenville County where all people have access to the opportunities to achieve their full potential.

Why partner with United Way?

For nearly 100 years, United Way has been a force for good in Greenville County. While our work has evolved to meet the challenges of the day, our mission remains much the same: We mobilize people and resources to improve lives, strengthen the community and advance equity for the benefit of all.

Today, that means a commitment to improving education, increasing financial stability, and building a vibrant and equitable community where a person’s zip code doesn’t limit his or her chance for success.

Through collaboration, innovation, volunteerism and strategic investment, we are achieving results. Because of the community’s support of United Way, more people have access to basic needs like food, housing, healthcare; more students are graduating high school; and more people are trained and hired for self-sustaining jobs.

OUR CORPORATE PARTNERS

Did you know?

Despite our successes as a community over the last 20 years, not everyone in our community shares in the prosperity.

  • Greenville County is ranked as one of the 10 hardest places to climb out of poverty.
  • 55,000 people in Greenville County were living in poverty — 1/3 of which are children — even before the pandemic.
  • 54% of white eighth-graders are meeting or exceeding math standards, compared to just 17% of Black and 29% of Hispanic students.
