About Us

United Way of Clallam County envisions living in a place where everyone is supported socially, economically and in their physical and mental health.   Our Mission is to strengthen our community by helping people live safe, healthy, and productive lives. We do this by:

  • Being a constructive voice for human service needs in Clallam County.

  • Providing a way for people to give, advocate and volunteer in our community.

  • Leading collaborative, community-wide efforts to obtain and provide resources to enhance community well-being.

We want all people to have the opportunity to achieve their full potential. We support programs in Education that promote academic achievement. We advance Economic Mobility by helping everyone achieve greater financial stability. We promote good Health by partnering to maximize physical and mental health and well-being across all of Clallam County.

Funds raised in Clallam County go to programs and projects addressing three main areas: Education, Economic Mobility and Health.  We fund 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 do this so that our community advances learning at all levels; achieves greater financial stability and improves physical and mental well-being. We also manage the Clallam Community Foundation, that accepts bequests of all kinds, including remainder trusts and donor driven funds.

Incorporated in Clallam County since 1952, United Way of Clallam County is a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization governed by a local volunteer board of directors, and managed by two full-time and two part-time employees. Hundreds of volunteers county-wide give of their time and talents to United Way and our Partner Agencies.

History: The United Way of Clallam County was established in 1952 as United Good Neighbors. In 1974 the name was changed to United Way of Clallam County.  Today, we are governed by a local board of directors and continue to improve the lives of all residents of our community.
