Clarece Walker, CEO/President United Way of the Lowcountry

United Way of the Lowcountry’s work is focused on the building blocks for a good life in Beaufort and Jasper counties.

That includes providing emergency help with basic needs like shelter, food and clothing; education (helping children and adults achieve their potential); health (improving health to improve lives); and financial stability (improving people’s lives).

Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy.

United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing the underlying causes of these problems. Living united means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. Give. Advocate. Volunteer. LIVE UNITED.

1. Dollars contributed locally stay local.
2. Local volunteers, our friends and neighbors, monitor the use of United Way funds and make all decisions locally
3. Social issues know no boundaries — at some point, we all need help.
4. The greater the community investment, the greater the opportunity for broad and positive impact.
