Invest in Community With CommunityWorks

Invest in Community With CommunityWorks

In this season of thankfulness as we prepare to wrap up the year, I wanted to thank those of you who have supported us in 2022. This year, we continued our financial equity work throughout South Carolina through small business lending and support, affordable housing financing and development, down payment assistance lending, and more.

CommunityWorks has served over 7352 with an economic impact of more than $382M since our 2008 inception – all with a keen focus on serving underserved communities. As the new CEO of CommunityWorks, I’m excited to step into 2023 with a clear vision and focus. We are currently wrapping up our 3 year strategic planning process which will be our guidepost as we work to expand our reach. We look forward to sharing more about our impact and goals in early 2023.

CommunityWorks counts on the investments and support of the community. There are multiple ways to support our mission. See the list below and please know that my inbox and phone is open to connect with you. Thank you for keeping us in mind during this giving season.
