Pee Dee Disaster Relief Fund Grant Distribution Process

Fund History: The Pee Dee Disaster Fund was first established in 2010 at the Eastern Carolina Community Foundation through a partnership with the Darlington Raceway in response to tornados that hit Darlington. In 2015, donations helped to support organizations responding to the floods. In more recent years, we have faithfully responded to Hurricanes Matthew and Florence. Now, in 2020, we are experiencing a time of global pandemic, which is both a health crisis and an economic challenge.

The ECCF Board of Directors serves as the decision making body for the grant’s distribution. Our intent is to help organizations respond to food, shelter, health, and nonprofit sustainability needs stemming from the pandemic in a quick and efficient way. Grants are available in amounts varying from $500- $2,000. This fund will award grants in three rounds, over a six month period, in order to provide a much needed cash infusion quickly, while also preparing for long-term needs of the community.
