Our Regional Affiliates

Within the Community Foundation's larger 11-county footprint Chapin, Kershaw, Sumter, Orangeburg and Calhoun have established endowments specific to their areas to better serve local community needs.

Our affiliates are each comprised of a local board of advisors that provide leadership over the resources for the nonprofit organizations in their targeted areas. These advisors are local community leaders and representatives.

Central Carolina Community Foundation provides management support services for each endowment, which is invested as part of the Community Foundation's larger pool of funds. Our affiliates benefit from our diverse investment portfolio and low fees, typically found only with very large funds. This structure allows our affiliates' grantmaking dollars maximum impact for their local community.
