About Us Overview

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 community programs and services within four impact areas:

  • Education & Youth Development
  • Economic Independence
  • Health & Wellness
  • Basic Human Needs

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, professionals and other volunteers 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 income, which covers almost all administrative and fund raising costs, donor contributions go to help people in need.
