To lift the community and change lives together through the collective power of advancing the common good.
Since 1972, the United Way has helped Martin County residents receive valuable health and human services by providing support to worthy causes and organizations. Although there are United Way organizations in almost every part of the United States, each one is governed by its own local board and is completely autonomous from United Way Worldwide.
The United Way of Martin County is a volunteer-driven organization. This means that individuals living and working in the local community volunteer their time and expertise to set and monitor the direction in planning, policy decisions, and financial development of the United Way.
Through a once-yearly campaign, the United Way of Martin County offers individuals, companies and their employees the opportunity to choose how they want to respond to our community needs. These options are:
Priority Area: Donors can choose to have their donation support one or more of United Way’s six priority areas: Ending Hunger, Strengthening Families, Enhancing Healthy Living, Improving Education, Supporting Employment and Ensuring Safety.
Community Impact Fund: Donors can choose to have their donation be a part of United Way’s strategic approach to community-solving.
Designation: Donors can specify that their donation be designated to a particular 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization.
