United Way of Greenville County Board of Directors

United Way of Greenville County is made up of hundreds of community volunteers who work with staff to raise money, invest dollars, shape organizational policy and more.

These volunteers are professionals and community representatives from diverse backgrounds who bring a variety of talents to the organization — and further our mission to improve lives, advance equity and strengthen the community.  

Our Board of Directors provide overall governance of United Way of Greenville County by monitoring policies and programs, and establish the organization’s strategic purpose and direction.
