Every day, people choose Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to help them make an impact in our community.

Strengthening Our Community

Through grants from our many funds, we address the critical issues and ever changing needs of the Lowcountry, whether it be keeping our waterways pristine or ensuring that a deserving student be the first in her family to attend college.

In addition to grants awarded to nonprofit organizations and scholarships to students, we share resources to educate our constituents and we undertake initiatives that strengthen our community, ensuring the Lowcountry remains the place we’re proud to call home.

But we can't do it alone. Just as we support the community, we need your support to continue this critical work. Our various Touch Tomorrow funds support specific regions of our four-county service area. If you'd like to help us continue to create positive change and make a meaningful impact, please donate to those funds here:

"Without a steady and dependable supply of food, it's difficult for children and adults to learn, function and thrive. Support through grants (like those from the Community Foundation) makes it possible for us to rescue food from 30 food donors and distribute that food to 57 agencies."
