What We Do

The Town of Palm Beach United Way helps advance the common good for those in need throughout Palm Beach County by focusing on programs and priorities that promote EDUCATION, HEALTH, and INCOME.

We are committed to ensuring that funds raised during our annual campaign are effectively and efficiently invested to address critical health and human service needs in these specific areas. 
 
Volunteers assess agency programs for targeted outcomes and measurable results. We believe that quality programs and services can only be accomplished consistently and over the long run if an agency has the appropriate governance, financial, and administrative structure in place.
 
Allocation Committee teams consist of community volunteers who serve as the eyes and ears of thousands of our donors. Volunteer teams visit each of the Town of Palm Beach United Way partner agencies, educating themselves regarding the agency's mission and efforts to make a positive difference in the community. These committed volunteers spend three months and countless hours examining community needs and agency services, and all decisions by Allocation teams are made by consensus after reviewing audits, 990s, site visits and submitted applications. 
 
EDUCATION
Our goal is to put kids on the path to success by investing in their development from early childhood to young adulthood - ensuring they have the opportunities they need to thrive.
 
HEALTH
Our goal is to ensure people are healthy and safe in their home, community and schools, and have increased access to dental and medical care.
 
INCOME
Our goal is to address food, shelter and living expenses so that every household is supported by an income that enables long-term financial stability.
