Grants of up to $50,000 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations for innovative programs that will benefit Greenwood County residents.

The Innovation Grant supports creative ideas that foster strategic change within the Greenwood County community. This Grant generates collective excitement due to its originality and courageous approach to addressing root causes of systemic problems or deficiencies, or by contributing to a healthy, thriving community. Successful proposals will stretch the imagination and enrich lives. Collaboration and partnerships among organizations are expected and essential to assure lasting impact and success.

Proposals demonstrating collaboration with other organizations or unique community value are strongly encouraged.
