Coastal Community Foundation Through the Years


“I think it will give so many students the opportunity to go be who they want to be and fulfill so many dreams they may not have believed they could fulfill. I think it’s a program of hopes and dreams.”

—Christian Carter, Reverend Pinckney Scholar

“You can gift money that is expended today and you can make a difference, but then it’s gone. But with an endowment, you can spend a little bit of money today and invest the rest and make a difference forever.”

—Tom Anderson, Fundholder

“The Coastal Community Foundation has allowed us to keep thousands of families safe in not only their homes but their cherished communities. Countless lives throughout the Tricounty have been impacted through costly but critical home repairs, thanks to the amazing advocacy of CCF. We are truly grateful for all the resources Coastal Community Foundation brings to the Lowcountry!”

—Operation HOME, CCF Grantee
