Hundreds of individuals, families, groups, businesses, and nonprofits have established funds at the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. These funds support a wide range of efforts, both within the Lowcountry and beyond.
We provide personalized philanthropic services through a culture of openness and accessibility that makes it easy and comfortable for all segments of our community to feel connected to their community foundation.
Our focus is local. We closely monitor community needs, opportunities, and resources and connect them to create positive results in our community. We are a local organization staffed by people from our community and led by a local Board of Trustees with an in-depth knowledge of the issues that shape our community.
As a community leader, we have the ability to make connections and work with others, donors, community organizations, government, other local funders, etc., to augment resources to effectively address community issues.
At the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, our mission is strengthening community by connecting people, resources, and needs. We strive to fulfill this mission every day.
