“As a lifelong enthusiast to serve, give, and make the world around me a better place, I cannot think of a better place to maximize and unlock my potential. I am extremely thankful to the Soul Philanthropy Donors, the African American Studies Department at the University of South Carolina, and Central Carolina Community Foundation for believing in me, investing in my future, and trusting me to carry out the initiatives of the Foundation.” – Antionna Fuller

“After interning at a nonprofit this summer, I gained an increased interest in philanthropic work and community development. When searching for a fall internship, I was attracted to the Central Carolina Community Foundation because it served such a large span of nonprofits throughout the Midlands. I’m excited to put the strategies and knowledge I have gained as a student at the Moore School to work this fall.” – Nora Jebali
