The Greenwood County Community Foundation will be accepting applications through the month of February for grants to be awarded in the annual Youth and Education granting cycle. Granting guidelines and application information can be found at greenwoodcf.org.
In 2015, 27 area nonprofits received a combined $75,000 in grants from the Foundation’s unrestricted funds. Awards between $370 and $5,000 were disbursed, for purposes as wide-ranging as initiatives to address domestic violence, enrichment programs for children in need, outreach stage performances, resources for families with autistic members, and furnishings for a new treatment center.
To date, GCCF has allocated more than $1.75 million in grants, mostly for projects and programs in Greenwood County.
