Behind all our work, there are people like you who get involved in big and small – but always significant – ways to ensure a better future for their family and their community.  At United Way of Coastal Carolina, we believe that by investing in programs and services that build stronger, healthier and more financially stable individuals and families, we can create a better life for everyone in our community.

We invite you to be a part of our vision.


Your investment matters. When you give to the United Way of Coastal Carolina, you are helping us drive real, measurable change in Carteret, Craven, Jones and Pamlico Counties; in the neighborhoods where we live, work, and play.  Your gift, combined with thousands of others, is a powerful investment in the best work happening achieving the best results. By investing in Education, Financial Stability, and Health, we’re bringing about real change in our community.

Your donations transform the lives of your neighbors in Carteret, Craven, Jones and Pamlico every single day. When you give to United Way of Coastal Carolina, your whole community literally keeps the change.


Living United is not about politics, it’s about understanding the complex issues that face our communities, our state, and our nation, and coming together to solve them.  We need your voice to create community change. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to stay-up-to-date on the issues affecting our communities.

Whether you’re speaking out to improve education, financial stability, and health, telling your representative what you think, or using social media to spread the word about an issue you care about, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.


You are the tutors, mentors, board and committee members, coaches, and others who give your time and talents to advance the education, financial stability, and health of our communities. United Way of Coastal Carolina connects individuals, families, groups, and workplaces to fun, productive, and meaningful opportunities. So no matter your age, you can make an immediate and lasting change, improve lives, and build a stronger community fabric.  There are many volunteer opportunities that span our different impact areas.  GET CONNECTED – we’d love to have you join us!
