CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The newly formed African American Leadership Council is leading the effort to improve the education and financial lives of families and children.

The group launched a new initiative Monday to raise more than $20 million dollars for early childhood education in the Tri-County area.

Organizers said the goal is to raise $2,020,000 by the year 2020.

A donation of $82,000 kick-started the campaign Wednesday, according to organizers at a press conference at the Avery Research Center.

The Trident United Way will lead the fund raising effort.
