Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation

The Hootie and the Blowfish Foundation was established in 2000 to create an endowment that benefits children of South Carolina through education and music programs. Central Carolina Community Foundation administers the grant process for the Hootie and the Blowfish Foundation.

Darius Rucker, Jim "Soni" Sonefield, Dean Felber and Mark Bryan have embraced their fortuitous career with the community that supports them. The Hootie and the Blowfish Foundation was created in conjunction with the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Golf Tournament. Funds benefit children of South Carolina through education and also support school music programs nationwide.

We are currently not accepting grant proposals for The Hootie and the Blowfish Foundation.
