This rating was published 04/01/2021 and includes data from FY2019, the most recent 990 received at that time.

United Way Suncoast is dedicated to breaking the cycle of generational poverty in the region. Our strategy is to focus on programs and services to build early literacy, youth success and financial stability for those in need. Why? Because undereducated children in poverty are nearly three times more likely to drop out of high school and repeat the cycle. Celebrating nearly 100 years of historical roots locally, the United Way has worldwide recognition. Since 1924, the presence of the United Way in the Suncoast region of West Central Florida has been growing and combining into what is now the United Way Suncoast serving Desoto, Hillsborough, Manatee, Pinellas, and Sarasota counties.
