The United Way of Oconee County was formed in 1966 as the United Fund of Oconee County. County leaders of community drives in Oconee County decided to merge their agencies to mobilize and stimulate the citizens of the county in behalf of worthy educational, health, and welfare organizations to solicit and receive contributions for participating agencies; to allocate and distribute funds raised to approved agencies, to promote efficiency by providing a means through which annual contributions can be made in one gift, and by reducing the expense of raising funds through a cooperative appeal. It also promotes cooperation, not only among member agencies, but all such organizations of Oconee County. The present name was adopted in 1975.
