Aflac prides itself on being a vital part of each of the communities its team members call home.

Aflac Group's grant program focuses on supporting organizations with a local, rather than a national or international, perspective. Aflac Group primarily accepts grant proposals from nonprofit organizations serving South Carolina. 

The Aflac grants committee is comprised of a dedicated group of community minded employee volunteers. Central Carolina Community Foundation staff supports the Aflac grants committee. 


Grants will be considered for programs that specifically support the following program areas:

  • Health & Well-Being
  • Education
  • Community Development

Grants awarded from Aflac through Central Carolina Community Foundation range from $1,000 to $10,000. Please do not submit a proposal exceeding $10,000. For funding requests outside the stated parameters (program area or amount), please contact Cortney Bailey at
