Forward United

For more than 80 years the organization has continued to evolve to meet the needs of the times, helping to provide solutions to our greatest challenges.  From the 2008 Imperial Sugar Refinery explosion, to hurricanes, and now a pandemic – we’ve been on the front lines working to rebuild and restore our community. We now move Forward United, bringing the lessons of the last year to guide us throughout this year and beyond.  We invite you to become more involved because we know that through our combined efforts we can truly improve the lives of people throughout our community.

Start a Workplace Campaign

Workplace campaigns are much more than just collecting money. They bring awareness of local issues facing our community to local businesses.

Create an online fundraiser

United Way touches thousands of lives through the power of partnerships and now you can decide how and why you want to make a difference. Challenge your family and friends to help you raise by sharing your virtual fundraiser on social media. Together, we’ll create a community of opportunity where everyone has hope and can reach their full potential.

Always United Challenge
