Grants and Scholarships


The Spartanburg County Foundation supports a wide variety of projects which clearly provide innovative responses to address the goals and/or priorities set forth by the Spartanburg Community Indicators Project, with a particular emphasis in the areas of Education and Social Environment.

Each year, the Foundation sets an unrestricted grant budget to award funding to nonprofit/tax exempt organizations and institutions that provide services to the residents of Spartanburg County, South Carolina.

Since 1943, The Spartanburg County Foundation has worked to improve the quality of life for all residents in the Spartanburg County community.  Realizing early that education was the basis for progress, the Foundation established the first scholarship program in 1946 and began awarding annual scholarships to Spartanburg County students.  Today, the Foundation facilitates scholarship funds, established through the powerful generosity of many donors, to support students in our community.
