To rapidly deploy resources to community-based, frontline nonprofit organizations addressing the COVID-19 pandemic in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties.
This fund was established by the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. In just a few short weeks, the community’s generosity has been overwhelming. Donations of more than $200,000 have poured in. The Community Foundation added an additional $200,000.
Whom it Helps
As of May 1, the Community Foundation had granted more than $288,000 to 17 nonprofits that are providing food and/or mortgage/rent relief or are addressing domestic violence. The needs are great, as the economic ramifications to families experiencing layoffs and furloughs increase.
