This program is supported in partnership with the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE).

Every dollar goes to investing into our community
Our name comes from the number of rivers that flow through the geographical area we serve; the Wando River, the Cooper River, the Ashley River, and the Stono River. The inception of a river is similar to human life. “Rivers start slowly . . . quietly and learn to crawl along in meandering fashion before they take off down a hill, eventually building up to a roaring, noisy life pouring down the side of a mountain.” Our name characterizes four imaginative rivers that symbolize life enhancement and embody our vision of Enriching, Transforming, Bridging (the Gap in the lives of people), and Sustaining (their success).
