In the last year, Coastal Community Foundation granted $16.6 million to nonprofit organizations. This funding was distributed to organizations in three countries and 38 states, with 71% of the money remaining in the state of South Carolina. $5.2 million went to organizations that applied for CCF grants and $11.4 million was directed by donors to causes they are most passionate about.
Coastal Community Foundation received 35% more contributions from donors than the previous year, a total of $59.3 million in 2022.
“CCF is proud the community continues to prioritize charitable giving,” said President and CEO Darrin Goss. “With the rising cost of day-to-day expenses, we know nonprofit organizations will be trying to stretch each dollar further in 2023. We look forward to providing more grants to these groups in the year ahead, while working closely with donors to reach their charitable goals.”
In the last 25 years, Coastal Community Foundation granted a total of $300 million to nonprofit organizations.
CCF has several grant deadlines approaching in January and February. This grant cycle has opportunities for nonprofits in the fields of education, special needs, individual artists, neighborhood groups, housing, and healthy waterways. Nonprofits interested in applying can find more information here.
