Trident United Way InitiaTives

Education is one of the building blocks of a good life and goes hand in hand with our other community impact focus areas of financial stability and health. We believe that every child should have equitable access to high-quality education and that education starts at birth with parents and guardians as a baby’s first teachers.

We are working with community partners to identify innovative programs and resources for our Tri-County community that support all new parents, connect families with programs and resources as well as make sure all children are kindergarten ready by age five. 

To support this work, we actively work with large institutional partners, like school districts and hospital systems, as well as practitioners and community groups to develop creative systemic initiatives, identify grantmaking opportunities and provide technical support. We are proud to be partnered with a diverse group of stakeholders at every level in making positive, community-level change in Education. 

Together, we can accomplish positive changes in education for every child in the Tri-County area.
