United Way of North Central Florida envisions our community as a place where all individuals and families achieve their full potential through education, financial stability and healthy lives. To achieve this vision we will provide world-class experiences for individuals to get involved in and support causes they care about in ways that are engaging, meaningful and transformative. In our work we will create positive and permanent change by forging unlikely partnerships, finding new solutions to old problems and mobilizing the best resources.

But we can’t do it alone.

It takes all of us coming together as one, striving towards a collective impact that will turn the curve in our community.

On Thursday, June 6 we held our first annual Business & Community Partnership Breakfast with over 200 attendees representing small business, workplace campaigns, city officials, community influencers, and community and nonprofit partners.

The event included a panel discussion, overview of our Community Investment process and a call-to-action for everyone to GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER.

GIVE - mobilize your employees to give back to the community through regular payroll deduction by running a workplace campaign . A Small Business Partnership is a great way for small business owners to make a Big Impact on a monthly basis. Sponsorships show the community that your organization cares.

VOLUNTEER - put boots on the ground serving our most vulnerable population and bring hands together to collect much needed items such as food, toiletries and diapers.

ADVOCATE - help others to Live United by fostering collaboration and partnerships. Become a part of Women United , Emerging Leaders United or join our new Speakers Bureau today!

So where do you start? Or, if you’re already involved, how do you expand your partnership? Contact us and a member of our team will help craft a GIVE. ADVOCATE. VOLUNTEER plan that works best for you and your organization.
