United We Thrive
No one organization alone working in isolation can improve education, financial stability, and health for every person in Charlotte County. The only way we can create real, lasting change is by innovating the way people, organizations, and systems work together. United Way of Charlotte County works with local nonprofits to address the roots of significant issues in our community. This collaborative effort allows us to wrap our efforts around a problem and tackle it from many angles, producing measurable outcomes that are changing lives.
We view our grantees as partners in addressing complex social needs.
Our partners are doing incredible work throughout our community every day. Together, our efforts are aligned to create long-term change in the areas of health, education, and financial stability. Every funded partner measures their work and program to ensure that donor dollars are being optimized for our community. Each program provides a piece of the complex puzzle to create success. There is no one solution to solve our community's complex problems, but together through a holistic approach we create solutions.
We use a rigorous vetting process to determine funding allocations.
United Way of Charlotte County's partners are thoughtfully selected through a trusted application process that utilizes trained volunteers from across the community. With limited resources, the volunteers provide input to our Board of Directors on very difficult funding decisions.
