Awarding grants to local nonprofit organizations through our Community Impact Fund is just one strategy United Way uses to empower individuals and promote self-sufficiency to create a brighter future for the residents of Beaufort and Jasper counties. This strategy encourages innovation, sustains and enhances existing programs and services, and supports collaborative efforts in order to achieve community impact goals that were created by our community.

Through Community Impact, UWLC partners with nonprofit agencies in Beaufort and Jasper counties to focus on common goals and outcomes in the areas:
Together, we are prioritizing self-sufficiency, ensuring that the support we provide is sustainable and makes a lasting impact in the Lowcountry.
UWLC’s Impact Process is one of the things that make us unique! We ask VOLUNTEERS from the community, who donate to United Way, to tell us how they would like their money invested in the community! We ask them to visit, report, deliberate, and evaluate agencies and programs that serve the residents of Beaufort & Jasper counties. The Community Impact Committee and panel members work hand in hand with the staff of the United Way and agencies, making equitable and responsible investment decisions.
