Overview

Finding Solutions

When faced with divorce and lack of child support, Megan needed help in many ways: food, job skills, and financial assistance. Because Beaufort County United Way and its community partners had already established a path for others in her situation, Megan was able to take some critical steps toward independence.

"The United Way does a lot in our community to bolster collaboration and provide support for people in Megan’s situation. Helping her connect with food assistance, job training, and afterschool care allowed Megan to achieve success. I am always delighted to see how much the United Way makes this kind of impact in Beaufort County." - James A. Madson

The Beaufort County United Way coordinates its fundraising efforts in a variety of ways throughout the community. Individuals, small businesses, and medium-large sized employers can all easily participate in investing in our community.

A significant portion of campaign funds come from the corporate sector. Approximately 40 businesses in our community participate in an annual United Way campaign. By running a United Way workplace campaign, these companies and their employees show their commitment to our community.
