Audi Hilton Head Spotlights Community Foundation of the Lowcountry

Everyday Matters: Every Day Matters


Sharing our Story

This year’s annual report theme, Cause and Effect, reflects the Community Foundation’s deep devotion to our mission statement of Strengthening Community by Connecting People, Resources and Needs. It is also our chosen tag phrase for our latest venture, Lowcountry Volunteer Connections. 

This web-based platform is making the connection between nonprofits in need of volunteers and the many generous members of our community willing to donate their time. It has just launched and we look forward to watching it grow and making a significant positive impact.

The history of the Community Foundation is one of leadership and funding support for innovative, significant undertakings that helps to shape our community. Examples of this work can be found in the pages of this year’s report and throughout our website. From supporting youth-serving nonprofits to protecting our fragile environment, the Community Foundation and its many generous donors have made many decisions, some of them hard, all of them thoughtful, over the course of this past year.

We are your Community Foundation and we hope you will join us as we look forward to the future. It holds endless possibilities; and there is something for everyone to do and make Every Day Matter.

Ernst Bruderer, Chairman, Board of Trustees

Roughly 43 million Americans carry student loan debt, estimated to be about $1.51 trillion. (That does not include the estimated $119 billion in student loans from private sources not backed by the government.) The amount of student loan debt in the U.S. now exceeds both auto loan debt ($1.28 trillion) and credit card debt ($850 million). The only category of debt greater than student loans is mortgage loans.
  • All Together NOW Posted 6 months ago
    For many communities in the Lowcountry, “all together now” has taken on a more purposeful meaning.
