About the Beneficiary
There is a “new” United Way and one very different than the one our parents and grandparents knew. This visionary organization is creating programs designed to make lasting and positive change in Hillsborough and Pinellas Counties with a strategic focus on education, income, neighborhoods and safety net services to people in need.

United Way Suncoast has evolved from a traditional fundraising role to that of a strategic community impact organization. They have retooled their work to create lasting change through a Community Impact Agenda. To create real and lasting change requires a strategy that does not react with short-term fixes. Rather, United Way approaches critical regional issues with long-term, solution-oriented thinking and action.

United Way works on behalf of the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all. Focusing on education, income, a safety net of services and vibrant neighborhoods they provide families and individuals hope for the future.
