Give. Advocate. Volunteer.


We’ve all seen evidence of hardship in Clatsop County. We’ve heard about hardship we can’t see. We know people slip through the cracks.

We all want to help, but it’s hard to know where are our time and money are best spent. With so many problems, and so many organizations to address them, how do we choose where to invest our resources? What are the greatest needs? Which organizations are most effective at addressing those needs?

That’s where United Way of Clatsop County comes in. We do the research for you. We understand where the need lies in our area, and we know who’s doing the best work to address those needs. We ask the hard questions to ensure donations only support initiatives that effectively solve community issues.

Each agency, each program, each outcome is annually vetted to help ensure every marginalized person in Clatsop County has the opportunity to become a self sufficient, contributing member of our community.

When you donate to UWCC you can be sure that your contribution is making a meaningful difference in the quality of life in our county.


UWCC partners with local organizations that enhance the health, safety, education and financial stability of vulnerable populations. We support crucial, non-duplicated, effective programs through our Partner Agencies.

By helping advocate and fundraise for these agencies, we free them up to do what they’re best at: solving real problems.


It’s because of the generosity of donors, volunteers and advocates that progress is being made.

But there is more to do.

Our community needs your support, whether it’s through contributing dollars,  time or lending your voice in support of critical community issues. Join us and become part of something greater than yourself. Working together, we can help vulnerable residents of Clatsop County break generational cycles of poverty and abuse to unlock their potential and help strengthen our community.

A contribution to UWCC is truly an investment in our community, 100% of funds raised stay in Clatsop County.
