A STRONGER COMMUNITY BEGINS WITH YOU....
WE’RE MAKING PROGRESS
Last year the Beaufort County United Way and our community partners helped more than 5000 children develop skills and participate in tutoring and STEM programs. 3,600 seniors had a safe place to exercise, take classes, and make their lives more stable. Forty adults developed computer literacy. More than 650 were given emergency food, clothing and shelter. Our food bank and pantries served 61,450 units of meals. Three Born Learning Trails will be installed this year to help young children be ready for school.
Your investment and caring power fuels change. We are part of something great. Because great things happen when we LIVE UNITED.
JOIN US, AND MAKE OUR COMMUNITY STRONGER.

How many Jamies are in our community? How much does that cost us all? How can you make a difference? Watch here.
The FamilyWize Community Service Partnership is working with United Way to help more than 5 million people get medicine they otherwise wouldn't have been able to afford.
Because of our partnership, people in more than 1,000 communities now have (for free) prescription drug savings cards that are cutting their health care costs. Families are saving an average of $20 per prescription, but savings can be as high as 75% on any FDA-approved medicine at most pharmacies. That translates into real impact:
- $919 million saved on the cost of medications
- 8.7 million people helped
- 46.5 million prescriptions filled
