United Way of Richmond County History
There are around 1,300 community-based United Way organizations throughout the United States.
In 1965, a group of local leaders came together and started the Greater Rockingham Charities. The goal was set at $28,000. In 1970, the name was changed to United Fund, and in the 1980s, it was changed once again to what we know today as the United Way of Richmond County.
The United Way of Richmond County is a local nonprofit organization governed by a volunteer board of 12 directors.
