Because of the increased community need, the Foundation has revised its 2020 Spring Grant Cycle to be solely focused on COVID-19 relief and assistance. This grant opportunity will be dedicated to Spartanburg County nonprofits needing additional capacity to maintain operations throughout the pandemic. The Foundation’s COVID-19 grantmaking opportunity will focus on flexible grants to nonprofit and faith-based organizations providing direct services to communities that are disproportionally impacted by COVID-19.

Grant proposals will be accepted on a rolling basis through an online application. Grants will range from $10,000-$50,000.
