United Way of Manatee County

United Way of Manatee County (UWMC) develops the resources and partnerships that make a measurable difference in people’s lives. UWMC works with the entire community to explore how to collectively address root causes around socially complex issues. By following the collective impact model of establishing a Community Agenda, sharing data and accountability, and building and aligning effective strategies, UWMC will drive systemic change and achieve a deeper, long-lasting impact in the community.

The Suncoast Campaign for Grade-Level Reading in Manatee County effort is working toward mobilizing the entire community to create a new social norm that results in all of our children achieving long-term academic success. United Way of Manatee County believes that the entire community must be invested in our children’s education and collectively work together to ensure that all of our children graduate from high school on time having identified a future plan. That idea is the foundation for the Education focus of the United Way of Manatee County.
