#LowcountryVolunteers Challenge
Help us recognize and celebrate the service volunteers provide your nonprofit ---   and your organization could win $2,000!  

Nonprofits rely heavily on volunteers. In fact, many local nonprofits simply could not function without the generous spirit of the people who donate their time and talent to local causes. National Volunteer Week, April 15 - 21, is the perfect time to honor the volunteers who make the nonprofit world go around. To celebrate, Community Foundation of the Lowcountry has launched our #LowcountryVolunteers Challenge. #LowcountryVolunteers Challenge is a fun way to champion volunteerism and share with the world how meaningful volunteering is. As part of the challenge, we'll award four $2,000 grants to participating nonprofit organizations in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton Counties.

Opportunity Grants Available 

Opportunity Grants are available throughout the Foundation's service area, which includes Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper Counties. These grants are designed to stimulate and help launch new programs and projects; or to help focus, enhance, and/or expand an organization's existing programs and services; or as an investment in a capital project which is a critical enhancement to the mission of the nonprofit organization. Grants are available up to $10,000 and are considered on an ongoing basis throughout the year. Click here for additional information.
