Let’s build something together
Meeting the needs of underserved communities in Charleston and Hilton Head means taking an all-encompassing approach. To make a real difference, we're providing grants in key areas to address education, housing, health and employment needs. We’re concentrating on workforce development, particularly for youth programs in predominantly Black/African-American areas. Other grants are helping nonprofits scale up work for entrepreneurs and help minority-owned businesses as they deal with day-to-day challenges, on top of those spurred by the pandemic. Exciting initiatives are in the works to provide summer youth employment and apprenticeships for our Title 1 students by giving them meaningful, paid employment and a chance at a long-term career with scalable income.
