United Way Suncoast:
Fueling The Freedom To Rise

From our youngest learners to aspiring teens and ambitious adults,
you can help us impact lives.

At United Way Suncoast, we work to ensure the community’s future by fueling the freedom to rise today. We operate or support nearly 90 initiatives in our five-county region. Of those we serve, 84 percent identify as ALICE households, those homes where hard-working parents, children and individuals stand just one unexpected expense from dire circumstances.

Through our emphasis on early learning, youth success, and financial stability, we work to stabilize these households and galvanize our community when emergencies call for immediate relief. We show the way when people want to give of their time, talent or treasure to make a difference.

For nearly 100 years, United Way Suncoast has served this region as an agent for change. In short, we lead and create lasting impact in DeSoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, and Sarasota, because we know – United We Rise, United We Win.

United Way Suncoast is a leader, a convener and a partner and has the skill and capability of bringing many organizations to bear to surround the young children and families that we’re trying to serve.

United Way Suncoast continues to be the most valuable community investor in this region … doing the most good for really the most people.
