The Philanthropy Corner for Feb. 19th-25th

1 min read

At Coastal Community Foundation’s recent reception to honor grant recipients for The Beaufort Fund, Dr. Bill Singleton (L) and George Bush (R) shared their connections to the fund. Dr. Singleton of Jasper County serves on The Beaufort Fund Advisory Committee, visiting and learning about applicants each year in order to make informed funding recommendations throughout Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton and Jasper counties. George Bush was the catalyst for the creation of Med-I-Assist programs in Sheldon, Bluffton and Ridgeland, all of which received support from The Beaufort Fund this year. Med-I-Assist provides free prescription medication and vouchers for eyeglasses to low-income clients. All three programs are volunteer-run, so 100% of their combined $35,000 awards support direct services to their clients.

Each week, Coastal Community Foundation highlights organizations, donors and other charitable news in The Philanthropy Corner. If you’re interested in learning more about philanthropy in the Lowcountry, reach out to our regional Stewardship Officer, Gloria Duryea, at Gloria@CoastalCommunityFoundation.org or (843) 379-3400.
