These nonprofits in coastal SC could use your support during COVID-19 outbreak

The nonprofits in our region are stepping up for our communities most affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, ensuring people in poverty, the elderly, people facing homelessness, and those with limited access to healthcare have the essential resources they need.

Financial support for these organizations is critical so they can continue this essential work. CCF’s grantmaking team is actively working to keep track of all the organizations responding to the COVID-19 outbreak in our region, and we’ve compiled a list of the nonprofits most likely to need increased support as they respond to evolving needs throughout coastal South Carolina. Donating to any of these organizations is the perfect way to help strengthen your community, even while practicing social distancing.

This list will be continually updated as we receive further information from our nonprofit partners.

A note to nonprofits

If your nonprofit isn’t on this list, we encourage you to provide details of how you’re responding to the COVID-19 outbreak by filling out the brief COVID-19 Impact Survey here. Regional funders and chambers of commerce are collaborating on this effort to gauge the impact and challenges felt by nonprofit organizations like yours. Our goal is to deepen our understanding of how communities are being affected, while also helping organizations share resources when appropriate.

Please also consider sending photos and updates about your work to newstips@coastalcommunityfoundation.org for CCF distribution through blogs, emails and other content.

Help us push for this change.
