We envision a Cecil County where all individuals and families can achieve their human potential, through education, income stability and health.


We work to make a difference, to help others and to partner with the people of Cecil County. We operate efficiently and give our donors the assurance that their gifts are honored, and our costs remain low. 



United Way of Cecil County improves lives by fostering access to education, employment, health, and housing for all. We believe communities are smarter and stronger when they draw from a wide variety of experience, perspective, and wisdom.

With that said, we are committed to advancing diversity and inclusion at all levels of our organization, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, gender, religion, sexual orientation, disability, economic status, and other diverse backgrounds.  

We encourage our partner organizations, grantees, staff, volunteers, board members, vendors, and key collaborators to uphold these standards.
