United Way of Gaston County

Who We Are

The United Way of Gaston County currently partners with twenty-two agencies throughout Gaston County.

UWGC is more than a source of community funding. UWGC partners with FamilyWize to provide free prescription discount cards to county residents. The Family Wize program has, to date, kept over $1,000,000 in the hands of families and individuals by saving them money on prescription costs over the past decade. We also serve as the county partner for Dolly Parton's Imagination library; we provide 24/7 access to essential services and referrals through the NC 2-1-1 system. We sponsor this volunteer database for Gaston County non-profits to use.

What We Do

Our mission is To Unite Our Community to Help and Care for One Another

The United Way of Gaston County works to improve the lives of the citizens of Gaston County. Our vision is to build a stronger community where people can realize their full potential. We support programs throughout Gaston County to improve opportunities for education, to encourage better health outcomes, and to support financial stability in our community.
