What is a Community Foundation?

Community Foundations are nonprofit, public charities created by a collaboration of local citizens with a common purpose — to improve the quality of life in their region.

We are a unique tax-exempt nonprofit that establishes permanent charitable funds that are pooled and invested to meet the current and future needs of communities throughout the seven counties of the Pee Dee.

Anyone Can Be a Philanthropist
Donor Advised Fund

This is the most simple, powerful, and personal approach to giving. A Donor Advised Fund allows you to remain actively involved in suggesting uses for your gift.

Unrestricted Fund

Address a broad range of future needs not anticipated when the fund is established. Responds to the community’s most pressing needs.

Field of Interest Fund

Address important areas of community life. You identify a personal interest area and grants are awarded to organizations and programs in the area selected.

Designated Fund

Support the good work of a specific nonprofit organization. The fund provides a dedicated income stream through the power of endowment.

Agency Fund

A designated fund established by a nonprofit organization for the benefit of the nonprofit. We assist you in building an endowment for long-term support.

Green Leaf Fund

Anyone can be a philanthropist with a minimum donation of $1,000. After you grow the fund to $5,000 in five years, it will convert to a specific fund type.
