100 Year Anniversary

We're Celebrating 100 Years of Living United! 

The next 100 begins with YOU

For 100 years, United Way of Central Georgia (UWCG) has been a leader and trusted partner in improving lives and changing the trajectory of communities.

Thank you to our amazing donors, volunteers, and partners who have continued to invest in opportunities throughout the communities we serve.

Our History

The Community Chest of Macon and Bibb County was founded in 1922 through the leadership of local businessman, J. Clay Murphey. In 1989 three United Ways merged to create United Way of Central Georgia, with a mission to unite the citizens of Central Georgia in an effort to increase the organized capacity to care for citizens throughout the region. In 2014, The United Way embarked on shifting the focus of their community investment and leadership efforts to a “community impact model.” Community Impact is defined as an approach that looks at participant needs beyond just the services offered by a single program, and integrates services to provide a full spectrum of personal and social solutions.
