United Way of Greenville County announced today it will renew its current strategic investments in 67 local partner agencies for 2023.
The Executive Committee of United Way’s Board of Directors voted to approve the reinvestment of nearly $3 million in grants across its three impact areas — education, financial stability and vibrant & equitable communities — beginning Jan. 1, 2023, and continuing through Dec. 31, 2023.
“On behalf of United Way’s generous donors, we are proud to be able to make these investments in the very best community partners getting results in Greenville County,” said Meghan Barp, president and CEO of United Way. “Working together, we can improve economic mobility and make this a stronger, more equitable place for all.”
In 2020, United Way of Greenville County launched an investment cycle aimed to address community needs, improve economic mobility in Greenville County, and invest in and partner with the best organizations to achieve equitable outcomes. Through that process, United Way committed to investing in 67 organizations in the impact areas of education, financial stability, and vibrant and equitable communities.

Last year, these programs served more than 35,000 people in Greenville County with basic needs, education, job training and more.
