Giving Charleston children a brighter future
Our programs in four high-poverty elementary schools can transform a generation
After-school learning, summer camps and mentoring programs keep students engaged and developing all year long.
Creating a better Charleston for everyone.
Fostering new opportunities for success.
We know children have the chance for a bright future when they are educated, healthy and connected to their community. Our programs in Title 1 elementary schools give children access to opportunities that can transform a generation.
Fueling Charleston’s future.
We believe in treating the whole child through education, health services and supporting families and the community. Since 2010, we’ve collaborated with four elementary schools in high-poverty Charleston neighborhoods.
Through these relationships, hundreds of children have participated in after-school and summer programs, received health and medical services and attended community events and family fun nights.

Be part of our work.
At Charleston Promise Neighborhood, we know you want to be an engaged community member dedicated to the long-term success of the children who live here. In order to do that, you need to support an organization that uses education as a tool to fuel the local economy and future workforce.
But it’s easy to get insulated in your own circle of friends, co-workers and community. You may simply be unaware of the challenges facing your neighbors just a few miles or a bridge away. You’re not sure how to help and wonder if you can really move the needle on such an overwhelming problem.
Be part of transforming a generation in 3 simple steps:
1. Make a donation.
2. Know your dollars go directly to supporting programs that give children the opportunity to succeed.
3. Be part of a community where everyone has access to a bright future.
