Waccamaw Community Foundation is partnering with the Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation and Coastal Community Foundation to support communities in coastal South Carolina that are disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 outbreak.
This Fund will provide flexible resources to organizations in our region working with priority groups, including senior citizens, children, health-compromised, and workers in the hospitality and tourism industry in the nine counties along South Carolina’s coast: Beaufort, Berkeley, Charleston, Colleton, Dorchester, Georgetown, Hampton and Horry counties.
The immediate threat to our communities is the spread of this virus and the pressures it could place on our healthcare systems. In addition to that, we anticipate short and long-term effects on our workforce and local economies. By pooling our resources now to support those most affected, our region will be better equipped to respond quickly and sustain that response over the duration of this crisis.
The fund is seeded with $140,000, with support from Coastal Community Foundation, Waccamaw Community Foundation and Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation. We are proud to also have support from regional institutional partners including Black River United Way, the Chapin Foundation, the Gaylord & Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, Trident United Way, United Way of Horry County and United Way of the Lowcountry.
We are working together to raise as much as we can to meet the current and future needs of our community. We would appreciate your support.
As of April 22, 2020 the fund has raised more than $1.2M for area COVID-19 relief and recovery.
