United Way of Southwestern Oregon

Detailed Information

United Way of Southwestern Oregon was founded in 1961 to provide an organized way to address the unique needs of people living on the southern Oregon coast. United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in Coos and Curry Counties. We focus in these three areas because, together, they are the foundation of success for every child, every individual, every family, every community, and every economy. We know that health, education, and financial stability are interconnected and, when strategically addressed, conspire to create communities where all people thrive.

We are a local fundraiser and a local funder. The money we raise here, stays here, and serves this community. We strategically invest by funding programs administered by the local organizations that provide the best services in our three focus areas. We are a convener, bringing together community leaders, local governments, other funders, non-profits, and stakeholders, to collaborate and coordinate our efforts to effectively address our most complicated social issues.
