About UWS

United Way Suncoast, which traces its founding to 1924, continues to be the best way to help the most people in our community in 2022. Through our own initiatives, and funding support of more than 100 programs, we give individuals and families in a five-county region (Hillsborough, Pinellas, Manatee, Sarasota and DeSoto) the freedom to rise by elevating education and financial stability. We provide leadership that improves lives and creates lasting community change by mobilizing the caring people of our communities to give, advocate, and volunteer.

We focus on ALICE (Asset-Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) families, those hard-working parents, caregivers and children who rest just above the poverty line.  Living paycheck to paycheck, they stand just one unexpected expense away from crisis.

We work every day to address our community’s long-term problems, and emerging issues such as the housing crisis. We’re here to meet those challenges. We’re here because we know no other approach than to be present for those longing to create a better life. We’re here because we know no other way than the United Way, bringing together caring stakeholders to make a difference.

We’re here because of you, and it’s your support that allows us to say, United We Rise, United We Win. Learn more by visiting www.unitedwaysuncoast.org.
