The 2017-2018 Campaign

The overwhelming proportion of United Way dollars comes from the residential community. Without the generous contributions of the people of our community, the United Way would not be able to provide the level of support that is currently possible. As our campaign goal increases each year, so will the level of service we are able to provide!

Who Gives?

Our 2017-2018 goal is $681,000 and each community investment brings us closer to reaching that goal. Every gift, regardless of size, helps someone.

The United Way idea of community-based fundraising has mobilized people to fight hunger, disease and poverty for over 100 years. Here in Chatham County, our United Way history has its roots in 1985 when a group of concerned citizens organized to better meet the needs of our community.

Together, we can make a difference… the united way!

The mission of the United Way of Chatham County is to increase the financial and human resources available for providing human care services to county residents.
