Education, financial stability, and health are the building blocks of strong children, strong families, and a strong community.

The United Way Community Fund is how we invest local dollars in our community to address local needs. Funding decisions are made through a competitive application process (learn more here). By leveraging donor dollars with our capacity-building grant process, we ensure the greatest return on investment for our donors, nonprofit partners, and those whose lives we improve together.

In 2019, United Way invested more than $3.6 million in 87 programs across 54 non-profit agencies in Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty counties creating a vital network  of support and services.

Preparing children to succeed in school

Our children are the future of our community, our world. We help youth and children to ensure their educational needs are met, and encourage them to become productive, engaged members of the community through quality child care and early learning programs, afterschool literacy and tutoring, youth development programs, and “summer slide” prevention.

providing pathways to financial stability

We help individuals, children, and families gain long-term stability and meet their basic needs in times of crisis. Whether it’s through adult literacy and financial classes, job training and workplace counseling, or providing essential food, shelter and support, United Way’s Community Fund aims to create financial stability in our community.
