Joye family gives major gift to Trident United Way

Trident United Way has announced that Charleston-based attorney Mark Joye and his wife Becky have made one of the largest individual donations ever to Trident United Way.

The Joye’s $100,000 gift is directed to support Trident United Way’s focus areas of education, financial stability and health. According to officials from Trident United Way, the Joye family specified there were no restrictions attached to the donation and said, “Trident United Way are great stewards.”

Mark Joye is a partner in the Joye Law Firm, founded in 1968 by Joye’s father, Reese. The firm has a long tradition of giving back to the community, including the “Joye in the Community,” program that encompasses all of the firm’s community and service efforts to support local education and aid organizations. The firm also offers several college scholarships each year.

Becky Joye is a College of Charleston alumna and previously had a successful career in the medical device sales and management fields. She is active in several Tri-County charitable causes.

Mark and Becky said the donation is not about business or career success but instead about how they were raised by serving fellow community members and contributing now while they can see the positive benefits in action instead of waiting for later in life.
