Spirit of the Midlands Award

The Spirit of the Midlands Award for Corporate Leadership is presented to a corporate partner that embodies an overall spirit of giving through contributions of time, leadership and resources in support of United Way’s work in the priority issues of student success, financial stability and health access. Nominations are due by March 29.

Blueprint for Change

Over the next three years, United Way will create generational change by building opportunities for youth and families, seeding innovation, and improving equity in care.

2021 Community Assessment

United Way of the Midlands’ 2021 Community Assessment asked hundreds of residents, “What kind of community do you want to live in?”

From the data and information collected, United Way offers eight calls to action and hopes everyone can find at least one area they can support and work on.

What We Do

Only United Way has the resources to provide large-scale solutions to pervasive community problems. By providing support when it's needed most, we interrupt a common pattern where emergencies can multiply. Addressing the root issues in the moment stops the cycle of crisis and gives families the opportunity to thrive—today, tomorrow, and for generations to come.


The Self-Sufficiency Standard for South Carolina is a measure of income adequacy that is based on the costs of basic needs for working families: housing, child care, food, health care, transportation, and miscellaneous items, as well as the cost of taxes and the impact of tax credits.
