United Way of Escambia County is advancing the common good and creating opportunities for a good life for all by focusing on and measuring progress within specific community impact priorities.
Over 9,000 donors and almost 350 organizations participated in the 2010-2011 United Way Campaign. From cookouts to karaoke, the campaign was surrounded by enthusiasm. The generosity of donors and hard work of great volunteers made the campaign a success, exceeding the goal by 3%.

Together the panelists make recommendations to United Way’s Board of Directors for how to distribute the undesignated contributions from the campaign.
The Board of Directors approved $1,104,979 to be distributed to 37 health and human service programs at 25 local non-profit partner agencies. The money is allocated to programs that have shown measurable outcomes and results within United Way’s three Community Impact Priorities:
