Why support the Community Foundation’s Annual Campaign?
Because of Annual Campaign donors, the Community Foundation of Greenville can respond quickly to the ever-changing needs throughout Greenville County, demonstrating our unique leadership and catalytic role in connecting resources to the evolving needs of our community.
In 2022, support from Annual Campaign donors helped the Community Foundation of Greenville provide funding to nonprofit organizations throughout Greenville County that address needs such as food insecurity, housing, education, mental health, and the arts.
In alignment with the Foundation’s vision and mission, the following investments were made to nonprofit organizations in Greenville County:
- Capacity Building Grants totaling $100,000 to thirteen local nonprofits including Center for Developmental Services, Clarity, Inc., Homes of Hope, Jasmine Road, Inc., Junior Achievement of Greater South Carolina, Nehemiah Community Revitalization Corporation, Pendleton Place, Ronald McDonald House Charities of the Carolinas, Servants for Sight, Sustaining Way, Travelers Rest Farmers Market, and YouthBASE.
- Minority-led Nonprofit Grants totaling $100,000 to seven local nonprofits including Center for Community Services, Parish House Community Development Corporation, Phillis Wheatley Community Center, Pleasant Valley Connection, Soteria, Upstate Circle of Friends, and Urban League of the Upstate.
- $20,000 to Gateway which supports adults living with severe mental illness.
- Completed our $1.2 million commitment to OnTrack Greenville with a $150,000 grant this year. The program is a middle grades success initiative aimed at keeping students on track to high school graduation.
Because of our donors, we are able to help many of the nonprofits that make Greenville a special place.
