CCF now accepting applications for the Facebook Grant for Sustaining Black Communities in Tri-County region

Coastal Community Foundation is now accepting applications for the Facebook Grant for Sustaining Black Communities, which will provide funding for nonprofit organizations and programs in Berkeley, Charleston and Dorchester counties supporting innovation, creativity, and resiliency in Black communities.

The grant program is specifically designed for nonprofits providing goods or services that directly and specifically support Black people and communities, with a preference for nonprofits that are Black-led, in the areas of arts, culture and humanities; education; human services; community improvement and capacity-building; and civil rights, social action and non-political advocacy.

Coastal Community Foundation is one of 20 community foundations in the United States selected in December to receive $1 million from Facebook to manage grantmaking to support Black communities and Black-led nonprofits.

The application period opened today and will close at 5 p.m. Feb. 17. The Grantmaking & Community Leadership Committee, comprised of volunteers representing our geographic footprint, is expected to make final award decisions in May.

Organizations interested in applying should visit coastalcommunityfoundation.org/grantee-login to begin the online process. If you have questions about the application process or your proposal, CCF will be hosting two virtual Q&A sessions for nonprofits in the Tri-County region. The sessions will take place from 6-7 p.m. today Jan. 27, and from 4-5 p.m. Feb. 3.
To receive a link for either session, please email Amber Brown, Program Officer: Amber@coastalcommunityfoundation.org.
