When we first opened in 1957, we were known as The Community Chest. Our first year, we raised $48,176.85. Since then, we have raised $25.95 million! We’ve changed a lot over the years, but our goal hasn’t. Since day one, our mission has been to engage and inspire communities to create a shared vision for the future and set goals for collective action in the areas of health, education, and income. And that’s exactly what we do. Every year, we’re amazed by the generous hearts and continued support of those in our community. It’s amazing what happens when we LIVE UNITED!
We all have a stake in creating a happy, healthy, and prosperous community. That’s why we’re working to make a better life for everyone in our community by focusing on the things that everyone needs for a good life: health, education, and financial stability.
At United Way of St. Johns County, we measure success not by dollars raised, but by lives improved. Our approach is to bring together agencies, businesses, organizations, faith-based groups, government, and individuals to focus on our community’s most critical problems. With partners who share our vision and have the passion to get the work done, we make a real local impact.
With nearly 1,800 United Ways making a difference in 41 countries and territories, we’re part of a worldwide movement bringing millions of people together to solve community problems.
Will you join the fight for the health, education, and financial stability of your neighbors in St. Johns and Putnam Counties?
Give. Advocate. Volunteer. Make a local impact. That’s what it means to LIVE UNITED!
