Featured Giving Opportunities

Impact the lives and communities around us …

Just Because

The Just Because Fund provides a unique and creative way for the Foundation to partner with donors and other funding institutions, to leverage resources, to support nonprofit organizations, and to build awareness about the important issues in all areas of the County.

Organizations selected to receive Just Because grants do not typically receive a lot of visibility, but work diligently to meet a pressing need in Spartanburg County.

“Ambush Philanthropy” Just Because events, special events, and donor engagement create unique opportunities to distribute grants from this fund.

Community Impact Fund

The Community Impact Fund fuels the Foundation’s work to improve the lives of Spartanburg County residents and funds the Foundation’s grantmaking each year. Everyone can contribute to this fund with the knowledge that each gift supports local data-informed initiatives to meet needs across the community.

Gifts may be made now or become part of your philanthropic legacy for the future – both help to respond to the changing needs of Spartanburg County for years to come. There’s no better avenue than the Foundation’s Community Impact Fund.
