United Way's Funded Agencies

 

We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, and when people are healthy.  Our partner agencies work hard every day to advance the common good in our community, and the United Way of Collier County strives to ensure that every dollar from our donors addresses the immediate needs of our community and delivers measurable results.  Each day, one in three individuals in Collier County receives help from a United Way Partner Agency.  Like every United Way in America, community volunteers make funding decisions locally.
