Working With Us

Our staff is skilled in working with donors and their professional advisors who have multi-faceted objectives and complex gift situations. As your partner in charitable giving, we can achieve success for you, your clients and the community.

Convenience

Call or e-mail us about any aspect of charitable giving.  We're happy to answer your questions.  We're also available to meet with you and your clients.

We understand that your clients sometimes prefer to remain anonymous so we will work directly with you on their behalf. Many of our relationships with professional advisors begin this way. Call us to explore a charitable option or discuss a client situation. Even if this doesn't result in a charitable gift through the Community Foundation, we're happy to help you.  No question is too simple or complex.  If we don't have the answer on hand, we'll find it for you.

Experience

We're experienced in customizing charitable giving options to meet the needs of your client. We can help you communicate the benefits of a particular strategy and help your clients make well-informed decisions.  We're committed to helping your clients achieve their financial and charitable goals.

Call on us for assistance in establishing a fund, selecting an investment strategy and setting up an effective grant-making program. Many individuals, corporations, and nonprofit organizations work with us because of our knowledge of local needs and our extensive experience in local problem-solving.

Permanence

Our strong record of financial stewardship assures your clients that their charitable agenda will be met now and for generations to come. The Community Foundation has been serving Greenville County since 1956 and we are guided by a strong volunteer Board of Directors, chosen for thier commitment to philanthropy and knowledge of community issues.  They maintain donor confidentiality and proper management of charitable gifts.

Economical

If each individual fund operated independently and had to recreate our services on its own, the price tag would be enormous.  But each of our funds shares the costs of an outstanding staff and excellent investment advisors. In a very real sense, we care about our donors and help them meet their charitable goals.

We sincerely want to be your partner in meeting the charitable giving needs of your clients. If you have questions about working with the Community Foundation, please call 864-233-5925 or e-mail Bob Morris or Gina Blohm.
