Eastern Carolina Community Foundation awards 65 grants in 2013

FLORENCE, SC (WMBF) - Eastern Carolina Community Foundation awarded a record 65 grants in 2013, totaling more than $200,000. These funds went to support education, after-school programs, youth athletics, the arts, local churches, hunger and homelessness outreach, and more.

At end of the year, grants from funds at the Community Foundation benefited dozens of organizations across Florence, Darlington, Marlboro, Chesterfield and Williamsburg counties. Grantees included the Boy Scouts of America, Bread of Life Food Pantry in Marlboro County, Mercy in Me Free Medical Clinic in Cheraw, and the Darlington Humane Society.

Women in Philanthropy, and Young Professionals in Philanthropy funded 14 of the Community Foundation's grants to nonprofit organizations. The remaining grants were given by donor-advised funds which allowed individuals to remain actively involved in suggesting distributions from their fund.

With the help of Eastern Carolina Community Foundation, anyone in the Pee Dee can be a philanthropist. More information is available by calling 843-667-1131 or from the Foundation's website at www.easterncarolinacf.org.
