The United Way of Horry County was established in 1973 by a group of concerned citizens who wanted to find the most efficient and effective way to address problems they saw in their community. Those citizens saw the wastefulness of money and volunteer time in having many different human service agencies staff and operate fund drives each year.
Since that time, the United Way of Horry County has been an organization focused on creating results you can see. No two communities are alike; therefore, no United Way organizations are either. Each United Way is an independent agency, led by volunteers from our community who have an intimate understanding of Horry County, their neighbors and what concerns they may face.
The United Way of Horry County volunteer board determines the most pressing needs and funds the programs that show accountability and results. The United Way is focused on bottom-line results: the lives we change and the communities we shape. The United Way of Horry County is working for results you can see because that is what matters to your United Way.
Each spring, an Agency Allocation Volunteer Committee meets to discuss the applications of each program, its budget and activities. Once the organization is approved by the Allocation Committee, the Board of Directors must approve the amount United Way of Horry County will give to each organization. All United Way Community Partners, which can not duplicate each others services, must meet rigid requirements established by the volunteers.
