Grants of up to $15,000 to South Carolina nonprofit organizations, government entities, and faith-based institutions in eligible locations for projects to benefit residents. A Letter of Intent is required before submitting a full application. Funding is intended for a special project or general operating support. Grant funds must be used by organizations working in Georgetown County.

The Bunnelle Foundation offers Grants for the Common Good in two cycles every year, Spring and Fall. 

Spring Cycle Focus Area:

  • Encouraging Positive Youth Development: Access to opportunities, programs, and resources that help youth reach their full potential

Fall Cycle Focus Areas:

  • Addressing the Root Causes of Poverty: Circumstances or inequities such as low literacy, teen pregnancy, inadequate parenting, or catastrophic life events
  • Meeting Basic Human Needs: Subsistence needs such as food, clean water and sanitation, shelter, health care, safety, and clothing
  • Promoting Economic Vitality: Promoting stable families, workforce development, and community wealth-building
  • Preserving the Environment: The protection, preservation, management or restoration of natural resources

Types of support:

  • General Operating Support is funding directed to an organization's operations rather than to particular projects. Examples: salaries, administration, office expenses, marketing, utilities, etc. Also included in this category are capacity building proposals, which expand or enhance existing programs to serve more people or provide more services. 
  • Special Projects launch new programs or help secure support from other funders. Salary expenses are allowable in Special Project proposals when a portion of staff time is spent working on the project.
