The mission of United Way of the Coastal Empire is to improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of communities.

Through partnerships, long-term planning, and wise investment of donor contributions, United Way supports more than 100 programs which represent 63 nonprofit agencies within three impact areas:

  • Education & Youth Development
  • Economic Independence
  • Health & Wellness

United Way of the Coastal Empire serves four counties: Bryan, Chatham, Effingham, and Liberty.

United Way is a volunteer driven organization that involves hundreds of community leaders and professionals in every aspect of our business, including fundraising, marketing, and funding decisions, to ensure that your donations are truly making a difference.

Thanks to the Herschel V. Jenkins Trust Fund and other revenue, which typically exceeds all administrative and fundraising costs, donor contributions help people in need.
