Support Our Initiatives
Our Talk About Giving initiative supports Midlands families in raising generous, community-minded children through active involvement in family giving and service. Statistics show that families who give — and who actively teach their children about giving — are more likely to transfer a commitment to giving to the next generation.
Literacy service providers, educators, business leaders, legislators and passionate volunteers are determined to break the intergenerational cycle of low literacy in our state. Literacy 2030 works to unite these stakeholders under an admittedly aspirational and yet important goal — reaching 100 percent literacy in the Midlands of South Carolina by the year 2030 — and works to connect, equip and support them for the journey.
The Graduation Imperative is a regional collaboration that was formed to increase college educational attainment rates and connect talent into the Columbia market for a more vibrant community. Anchored around our region’s institutions of higher education, our strategy focuses on community-led initiatives to engage and develop two- and four-year college graduates.
Perhaps you want to get even more involved in our community and start a charitable fund of your own. If so, please visit the Create A Legacy section of our website for information about the benefits of creating a charitable fund with the Community Foundation.
If you prefer to make a donation by check, simply send a check to our office and designate the fund or program you wish to support. However you choose to give, the Community Foundation sincerely thanks you for your support.
