Touch a Life, Connect Neighbors, Inspire Change

On a daily basis, our neighbors on Johns and Wadmalaw islands are faced with rural poverty and isolation from resources. Year after year, you advocate, volunteer and give to improve the lives of these families and individuals who are so often overlooked.

In 2017, your contributions to Kiawah Cares gave students and pre-school children the chance to begin a new cycle of success, breaking away from intergenerational poverty. Your passion for education touched the lives of many Sea Island students.

Other gifts helped make homes safe for residents once again with the help of partner program CHIP Ministry. You continued to connect neighbors with resources through the Kiawah Cares network of partners, lifting quality of life one family at a time.

Read some of what Kiawah Cares’ community partners had to say below:

Jamie Cooper, executive director of Communities In Schools
“One caring adult can change a student’s life. When a community of caring adults, like the Kiawah property owners, comes together, the impact echoes far beyond one student. It reaches a whole family, a whole school and a whole community. Thank you to Kiawah Cares and the Kiawah community for not just being one caring adult, but for being many.”

 

Judith Condon, principal of Angel Oak Elementary
“Kiawah Cares has been instrumental in supporting so many wonderful opportunities for our students in the areas of literacy, summer programming, classroom support and more! As a Title I school, we feel blessed to have the support of such a committed and caring foundation that truly cares about the well-being and success of all of our students.”
