Vision, Mission & Values


A Greenville County where all people have access to the opportunities to achieve their full potential.



We mobilize people and resources to improve lives, strengthen the community, and advance equity for the benefit of all.



It takes perfect interconnectivity to create a symmetrical star. At United Way of Greenville County, our focus on collaboration, both internally and externally, connects our team and our work with our community at large.

  • Support
    We collaborate with our team, stakeholders and organizations to support our community and move our mission forward.
  • Trust
    With integrity and respect, we embrace transparency and build relationships with each other and the community to deliver on our promises to all.
  • Act
    Each day we show up to do our best work for our coworkers, our investors and our community by staying proactive, adaptable and innovative.
  • Reflect
    We reflect the change we wish to see within our communities by holding each other accountable to our mission, recognizing how our leadership today will impact the future of Greenville County.



We recognize structural racism and other forms of oppression have contributed to persistent disparities which United Way seeks to dismantle. Our United Way strives 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, 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 — that means we must fight for equity. We continue to share tools and resources designed to support the work of United Way.



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.
