Coastal Community Foundation (CCF) recently distributed close to $2 million in regional grant funding. Nonprofits can apply for the annual grant program based on their service area. Regional grants were awarded to nonprofits across the Tri-County region of Berkeley, Charleston, and Dorchester counties and the Southern Lowcountry region of Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper counties.
$1.4 million in grant funding was awarded to 117 organizations in the Southern Lowcountry thanks to The Beaufort Fund. $591,000 in grant funding was awarded to 79 nonprofits in the Tri-County from Open Grants, the Giving Back to Berkeley County Fund, and Dorchester County Fund.
“We had a record number of grant applications this year,” said President and CEO Darrin Goss. “Thanks to the generosity of our donors, we were able to award $370,000 more in regional grants than last year. This grant funding stays right here in our home communities. CCF will continue to invest in our region and create opportunities so everyone has a pathway to achieve their goals.”
CCF’s next grant cycle is open now through January 15, 2024. These grants are awarded based on the mission of the nonprofit. This includes grants supporting education, affordable housing, community development, the environment, racial equity, health and wellness, and the creation of local art. Find more information here.
