United Way Suncoast

In July of 2012, United Way of Tampa Bay and United Way of Sarasota consolidated creating United Way Suncoast — representing a four-county region including DeSoto, Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Sarasota counties.

In 2014, United Way Suncoast announced its five-year strategic plan to break the cycle of poverty by focusing on early literacy, youth success, and financial stability as its priority work.

In January 2017, Duke Energy Foundation announced a $1 million grant to United Way Suncoast to benefit the Campbell Park community in South St. Petersburg, FL.

In 2017, United Way Suncoast and United Way of Manatee County merged to United Way Suncoast serving Desoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas and Sarasota counties.

The concept behind the first joint-fund drive in Denver, Colorado, remains valid today. Yet the United Way Suncoast has evolved and changed dramatically over the years, largely because the organization is a flexible system that responds and adapts to changing social conditions and social needs.
