In 1942, our community came together to raise nearly $25,000 to support four local agencies including United Way of York County. We continue to partner with two of those original agencies, American Red Cross and The Salvation Army. United Way of York County, SC was established in 2005 as a result of the merger of United Way of Fort Mill-Rock Hill-Tega Cay and Western York County United Way.
For 77 years, United Way of York County has improved the lives of hundreds of thousands of your friends and neighbors. As the community has grown and changed, so have we. We not only raise funds for local programs, but we work with community partners to find long-term, strategic solutions to problems that send ripple effects across our region.
United Way of York County transforms communities by offering opportunities which improve quality of life.
We believe to effectively address the needs of York County and our donors we must focus the community on addressing the issue of financial stability. This means we assist individuals with developing the income and financial tools with which to survive.
Our bold goal is to help 3,000 York County families achieve financial stability by 2030.
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life. Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.
United Way of York County, SC also appreciates the support of our corporate sponsors. With their support, United Way is able to apply more funding directly to what matters most to our community.
