COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund

Coastal Community Foundation serves an essential function in times of need. In the wake of natural disasters or other events with widespread ramifications, demand on nonprofit services tends to soar. And while charitable giving often spikes, too, donors don’t always know which organizations are serving the greatest needs at the time. Coastal Community Foundation helps bridge that gap by quickly setting up a link between donors and the specific causes that need them most. 

That’s why Coastal Community Foundation has activated the COVID-19 Relief & Recovery Fund to stand ready to deploy flexible resources to organizations that are working with communities disproportionately affected by the coronavirus outbreak and whose work is within our nine-county service area of coastal South Carolina: Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton, Horry and Jasper Counties. This effort is supported by regional organizations including Black River United Way, the Chapin Foundation, the Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Trident United Way, United Way of Horry County and United Way of the Lowcountry, as well as, the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation and Waccamaw Community Foundation.

We are funding requests to meet food insecurity, organizations that provide direct assistance to those they serve, and organizations that have expanded reach to meet the demand for services.
