UNITED WAY OF HORRY COUNTY 2023 COMPETITIVE GRANT FUNDING CYCLE
Through the new Community Impact Model, United Way of Horry County (UWHC) is addressing the needs of today, while diligently working to get to the root causes of key issues. With the community’s support, we are focusing on four priority areas: Health, Education, Self-Sufficiency and Basic Needs. To see our bold community goals, please see our Community Game Plan.
UWHC depends on our community members to help make important funding decisions by volunteering to serve on one of the four Community Impact Vision Councils (VC’s) (Health, Education, Self-Sufficiency, and Basic Needs). These volunteers help determine how undesignated United Way Annual Campaign donations will be distributed to local agencies and services throughout Horry County to make a lasting impact. There will also be a Finance VC to review all financial documentation.
