The Giving Marketplace, www.cf-lowcountry.org/thegivingmarketplace, is a web-based initiative providing detailed, comprehensive information about 501(c)(3) organizations in Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and Colleton Counties. It’s an effective tool for donors and funders to use as they make informed giving decisions. Each nonprofit profile includes extensive information about financial, programmatic, operational, governance and management practices.
