Who We Are


United Way of North Central Florida positively impacts the education, health and financial stability of people living in our region.

We are a local charity, governed by local community leaders, with a laser focus on improving education, health and income for people living in our service area. The most important part of what we do as a community fundraiser is that money raised here, STAYS HERE. We are committed to investing 100 percent of dollars raised via the Community Investment Fund to local needs. All of the money in the fund is applied in the counties of Alachua, Bradford, Dixie, Gilchrist, Levy and Union to agencies that best meet our criteria and make significant improvements within our focus areas.

What We Do

UWNCFL serves the six county area in four ways:

  • By funding results-driven programs, offered by Community Impact Partner Agencies and other organizations through the Community Investment Process.
  • By providing broad-reaching services (2-1-1: the 24-hour, free call for information and referral to help).
  • By developing grant-funded initiatives (including ReadingPals, VITA and the Sealant & Smiles children’s dental program).
  • By leveraging local money with federal grants to bring more dollars into our community.

In addition, United Way is a natural leader and convener of broad community building, as with the Community Visioning and Strategic Planning process, where we bring hundreds of organizations and experts together to envision, plan and engage in the work of building a stronger community together. UWNCFL engages within our community to find long-term solutions for issues impacting all residents in the areas of Education, Income and Health (EIH). UWNCFL is committed to collaborating with all segments of the community to build partnerships and help fill the needs in our community. It takes all of us working together to create a seamless tapestry of support to build a better and more resilient community.
