Our COVID-19 Response

We've granted more than $556,000 to 41 nonprofits addressing the immediate needs created by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We've established the Lowcountry Community COVID-19 Response Fund to rapidly deploy resources to community-based, front line nonprofit organizations addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties. The response has been overwhelming.
