Meet the Team

Our staff is a group of professionals who specialize in connecting individuals to opportunities throughout Spartanburg County. We base our work on community data, which allows us to provide expertise on identifying and solving the needs of Spartanburg County. We not only help donors maximize their charitable giving, but we also support nonprofits and individuals who seek additional opportunities to make Spartanburg a better place to live, work, and play.

Our staff works in teams (Community Leadership, Finance, Operations, and Philanthropic Services) and collaboratively across teams to meet the Foundation’s mission to improve the lives of Spartanburg County residents.
