About Us

Welcome to the United Way of Clallam County.  For more than 60 years, United Way has been advancing the common good in Clallam County by investing in the building blocks of a good life - Education, Income and Health. 

Our Mission: 
To strengthen our community by helping people to live safe, healthy and productive lives.

We do this in a variety of ways, working with the community to provide leadership in meeting human service needs, including raising and distributing local donations, and being a constructive voice for human service needs in Clallam County. We help people give to their community.  When we work together and invest in Education, Income and Health, we help individuals but more importantly, we strengthen the entire community. 

We fund our Community Solutions Initiatives and 24 Partner Agencies with annual allocations which come from undesignated donations to United Way. In addition, we distribute funds to non-partner agencies and other charities as directed by our donors through the designation process.

We also manage the Clallam Community Foundation, currently valued at more than $3,000,000. We accept bequests of all kinds, including remainder trusts and donor driven funds.

We encourage you to browse through our site to find out more about United Way of Clallam County, the area we serve and how you can be part of making our county a better place for everyone.
