Who We Are

United Way of Genesee County (UWGC) is a health and human service nonprofit, serving the residents of Genesee County, Michigan by raising the funds needed to continue critical support in four focus areas; Education, Health, Financial Stability and Basic Needs.  In addition to the core support areas, the United Way provides nonprofit sector capacity support through: aligned fiduciary services; grants that support human service sector systems; and, the BEST Project.

In June 2015, UWGC became the new home of Genesee Serves. Volunteerism is vital to a thriving and unified Genesee County and state of Michigan. UWGC believes that volunteerism makes the deepest impact when it is connected to a larger continuum of giving and serving. This continuum includes monetary and in-kind donations along with national service, corporate employee volunteering, and community engagement of all types. By connecting volunteers to the causes that need them, Genesee Serves further amplifies the power and talent within the community.
