Provide Organizations an opportunity to receive funding from the Foundation to execute projects that fit within the stated Mission Statement.
Statement of Need
There are organizations that have the same beliefs concerning critical education and health issues and have outstanding ideas and concepts on how to be a part of the solution. What is lacking is the opportunity and funding.
The Foundation will establish a Grant Program where organizations can apply for funding on a single or multi-year basis. Grants will be awarded annually with a $10,000 maximum limit. The Foundation Board of Directors may establish a committee to develop and manage this function. A policy and procedure guideline will be developed and made available to the public.
Funding will be set aside annually by September 1. Grant applications will be accepted each year between June 1st and September 1st.
The 2011 grant award winners are:
- American Heart Association in memory of Gaines Adams
- Helping Hands of Clemson
- Shalom Center, Belton, S.C.
- Collins Home, Seneca, S.C.
- South Carolina Cancer Alliance
- Clemson Free Clinic
- Foothills YMCA
- Anderson University Cancer Research Clinic
