The Palm Beach Community Chest was founded in 1945, by a group of concerned citizens in Palm Beach for the purpose of raising and distributing funds to charitable organizations.  In 2006, we changed our name to the Town of Palm Beach United Way, and for more than 69 years, our purpose has remained constant. We are dedicated to improving people's lives for the better and making our community stronger.
The mission of the Town of Palm Beach United Way is to help people, community wide, improve their quality of life.
