Community Impact

The United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties is committed to serving the community in the areas of Education, Financial Stability, and Health. To better serve the local community and invest in long-term, measurable change, the United Way has transitioned to the Community Impact model. 


Under the Community Impact Model, United Way funds 30 programs at 22 501(c)(3) non-profit agencies in Volusia and Flagler Counties. Community Impact Funding is based upon a two-year grant cycle, which began on July 1, 2017 and ends on June 30, 2019.
