Our donors care. We know you want to do good and to do it well, to act beyond random acts of kindness and achieve more than a tax shelter.
The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry strengthens community by connecting people, resources and needs. And we unite your wish to make a difference with a meaningful way to get there.
Donors in our communities are as varied as the Lowcountry we serve. We guide individuals, families, businesses and organizations with all sizes of charitable resources at their disposal.
Whether this is your entry into civic giving, or you seek to increase the strategic impact of your charitable portfolio, the Community Foundation offers the information and options you need.
Since 1994, we’ve served as the bridge between donors and their passion. Here’s how we work with you:
A Personal Connection: One-on-One Meetings
Our expert staff welcomes the opportunity to meet with you individually. We can answer your questions on effective giving approaches and suitable grant- making strategies. In the process of getting to know you, we become familiar with your specific reasons and goals for supporting your community.
Connect to a Cause: Research and Analysis
From programs in the arts and literacy to affordable housing and environmental protection, there is an abundance of worthy recipients seeking assistance from the Community Foundation’s permanent funds. Our knowledgeable staff helps you connect to the causes that matter most to you.
Stay Connected: Philanthropy Online
Donor Central is a dynamic online tool for advised fund donors. You gain instant access to fund information. The Community Foundation’s website is also a knowledge center. Chances are many of your philanthropic interests are shared by others and discussed in our resource section, staff-written articles, and newsletters.
