Our Services

Since 1974, we have provided philanthropists throughout the Lowcountry with best-in-class donor services. Today, our team is ready to work with you to achieve your charitable goals whether you are an individual, family, organization or company.

We build strong relationships at Coastal Community Foundation. By focusing first on getting to know you, we’re prepared to bring you the latest giving opportunities that align with your interests. Furthermore, by taking an active role in our region through grantmaking and community leadership, we are poised to connect you with the causes and initiatives that interest you most.

Fund Options

At Coastal Community Foundation, we value our donors and work hard to help them meet their individual, family or corporate giving goals. Each fund we manage has a unique design and purpose.

We offer a variety of fund options at CCF, including:

  • Donor-advised funds
  • Field-of-interest funds
  • Scholarship funds

Setting up an endowed fund allows your gifts to grow over time, allowing you to give more and support the causes that matter to you forever. Fund agreements are set up to give you flexibility in your level of involvement with and financing of funds.

Anyone and everyone can get involved with a community cause that they support. We welcome you to help create lasting impact by donating to an existing fund or joining our Community Partnership Program to get engaged with your neighbors and give right here in the Lowcountry.

Knowledge Building

Our knowledge building events for fundholders are targeted towards your interests. Topics vary from session to session, but they always focus on ideas we hear from you, our donors.

Past sessions have covered impact investing, intergenerational giving, estate planning and much more. We are always interested in hearing directly from donors about what sessions they’d like to see next.

Sessions occur regularly throughout the year. Our next session is “What To Do With My Art and Collectibles: The Charitable Solution”, presented by Ramsay Slugg of US Trust in March. Contact Betsy Kinsley to learn more or to suggest a topic.

Professional Advisors

Our professional advisors network is a resource for professionals to connect with the Foundation. We help you stay aware of upcoming projects and opportunities in the Low country to share with clients, providing you with the tools to deepen your relationships with them.

The network meets quarterly to discuss the latest in charitable giving locally, regionally and globally. Recent sessions vary from a discussion of changes to charitable tax giving codes to a presentation from the Charleston Regional Development Authority and Charleston Metro Chamber of Commerce on their new One Region Global Competitiveness Strategy.
