Trident United Way announces 2012-15 funding
Many nonprofit agencies across the Lowcountry breathed a sigh of relief today after learning from Trident United Way that their programs will be funded for three more years.
But others are trying to figure out how they will function in the future without the annual income from the local nonprofit.

“It was a very arduous, tough process,” said Bill Moody, chairman of the organization’s Community Impact Committee. “Ultimately, we decided to fund 56 programs that we felt best aligned with our 10-year goals.”
