Your gift to the Beaufort County United Way creates opportunities for a better life for all.

Our mission of "Neighbors Helping Neighbors" requires a community-wide partnership to identify and tackle critical health and human service issues--individuals like us coming together to invest our time, knowledge, and resources.
By combining contributions from individuals, small businesses, and workplace campaigns, the Beaufort County United Way leverages these resources on a large scale to advance the common good and produce positive change. Together, we are building a culture of caring in Beaufort County.
