WATCH: The Beaufort Fund of CCF scales up to meet evolving community needs in the Southern Lowcountry

The Beaufort Fund of Coastal Community Foundation, a competitive grants program created to make a meaningful difference in the Southern Lowcountry, has been serving the region since 1998. Over the 23 years, we have invested more than $10 million in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton, and Colleton counties.   

Over the past year, we have ramped up our efforts to serve the Southern Lowcountry further. This included the addition of the Catalyst Grant program, now one of four categories of The Beaufort Fund. The Catalyst Grant program supports nonprofits large-scale projects that address community-wide issues through collaborative, equitable, and innovative approaches.  

With this addition, our annual grantmaking in the region will exceed $1 million.
