Nonprofits working in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties are eligible to apply for funding during our June grant cycle. By completing this program application on our online portal, you will be considered for funding from the category for which you qualify.

In response to the continually evolving needs of nonprofit organizations serving these counties, CCF has provided additional categories of funding to the program, now in its 21st year of grantmaking. The creation of these new funding pathways will allow nonprofits to compete for funding with organizations that are similar in fiscal scope, life cycle and programmatic impact.

Requests for each of the following categories may be for programmatic or general operating support:

Genesis Grant: Nonprofits applying to the Genesis Grant may have an annual budget of $300,000 or less and be a 501(c)(3) public charity or have a fiscal sponsorship. This grant will support strategic growth and/or expansion to increase the impact of a program that has already been proven successful. This grant may also support a project that addresses a community need in a new or creative way. Applicants may request up to $8,000 of support from this category.

Operational Grant: Nonprofits applying for funding from the Operational Grant may have an annual budget of $300,000 or more and must have had 501(c)(3) public charity status for a minimum of five years. This grant is only available to organizations that have applied to the Beaufort Fund previously. Nonprofits may request up to $20,000 of support from this category.

First Time Grant: Nonprofits applying for funding from the First Time Grant may have an annual budget of $300,000 or more and must have 501(c)3 status. This grant is only available to nonprofits that have not applied to the Beaufort Fund previously. Nonprofits may request up to $10,000 of support from this category.
