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 92 programs at 58 nonprofit agencies within three impact areas:

  • Education
  • Income
  • Health

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.
