United Way announced today it has received a $10,000 grant from Truist in support of its work to increase the economic mobility of individuals and families through its Volunteer Income Tax Assistance (VITA) program.
“We are so thankful for the partnership and support of Truist as we work together to strengthen our community,” said United Way of Greenville County President and CEO Meghan Barp. “With Truist’s focus on low-income and underserved communities, they are the perfect partner for our work, and we thank them for their continued support of United Way.”
The grant will be used to directly support taxpayers earning $60,000 or less in obtaining all eligible tax credits and deductions, including the Earned Income Tax Credit, Child Tax Credit, Eduction Tax Credits and Child Care tax deductions. By offering this service for free, United Way can help more individuals and families maximize their returns while achieving greater financial stability.
