United Way has completed its annual allocations process.  United Way of Sumter, Clarendon and Lee Counties works closely with partner agencies to ensure that your generous donations are carefully and thoughtfully put to good use in our community. Each year volunteers make important allocation decisions that impact us all and help make our community a better place to live, work, and raise a family.

Building a strong community is like building a sturdy house. It requires many people working together. Just like you would bring contractors, carpenters, and other specialists together to build a house, United Way brings organizations and individuals together to address the health, education, and financial stability needs of our community.

Agencies serving Sumter, Clarendon and Lee Counties are awarded funds through the allocation process.  The funded programs must address one of our three broad-based community impact areas: education, health, or income.

The allocations process is the basis of our United Way.  It ensures fiscal and program responsibility for every agency that receives United Way funds, while also ensuring the needs of our community are met.

This allocation term, 17 local agencies were allocated funds from United Way that were collected from employee workplace campaigns, generous donations, and fundraising events.
