United Way of Pickens County is about advancing the common good by creating opportunities for a better life for all.

Our focus is on EDUCATION, FINANCIAL STABILITY and COMMUNITY BASIC SERVICES– the building blocks for a good quality of life.

We recruit the people and organizations from all across the community who bring the passion, expertise and resources needed to get things done. We invite you to be a part of the change. You can give, you can advocate and you can volunteer. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED.

Mobilizing the caring power of Pickens County to improve communities and individual lives in measurable and lasting ways. 

Give, and help us LIVE UNITED! Your generous gift will support United Way’s vital work in education, financial stability, and community basic services. Together, we’re making a difference in people’s lives and creating a stronger community for us all.


Whether you’re speaking out to improve the lives of those in crisis in our community, reaching out to members of Congress to address education policy, or wearing the LIVE UNITED shirt to show your support, you can help inspire hope and create opportunities for a better tomorrow.bl_circleicon_advocate2
