Grant Description
Grants of up to $2,500 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and faith-based organizations in eligible counties to benefit local residents. New applicants must contact the funding source prior to submitting a full proposal. Eligible applicants provide programs and services to Horry and/or Georgetown counties.

The Community Trust Fund supports a wide range of causes that share one common purpose: to improve the lives of individuals and families living in Horry and Georgetown counties. Funding is available for equipment and supplies, general operating support, and special projects or programs.

Funding priority is given to proposals that include one or more of the following facets:

  • Sensitive to an emerging need
  • Address existing needs in new and imaginative ways
  • Initiation of a promising pilot
  • Designed to reduce cost and increase efficiency of nonprofit organizations
  • Direct impact on persons with need
  • Plans for necessary funding to continue after the Foundation’s support has ended

Applications that meet eligibility requirements will be considered for general operating support; specific project or program support; or purchase of equipment and supplies.


  • Others (see text field entitled "Additional Eligibility Criteria" for clarification)
