United Way of Collier and the Keys has received a $3.5 million gift from the United Arab Emirates for innovative reef restoration and education projects. UWCK’s goal is to revitalize the Florida Keys coral reefs - a lifeblood of the Keys economy - while supporting sustainability through education. Restoring the local reefs will improve coastal protection and provide economic stability for residents, furthering UWCK’s efforts to create thriving communities by improving the financial stability of Keys families.

On April 1, 2020, United Way of the Florida Keys merged with United Way of Collier County, bringing us together as United Way of Collier and the Keys. This unification will allow the organization to increase operational efficiency, ultimately resulting in more resources available to improve the lives of struggling residents.
Money raised in the Keys community will serve the community as it always has, with existing local programs and funding to partner agencies continuing. More details...
