WELCOME TO GREENWOOD GIVES!
GreenwoodGives.org is a project of the Greenwood County Community Foundation. On this site, residents of Greenwood County, South Carolina – and others who care about this community – can give to support local nonprofit efforts. This project supports all of Greenwood County including Ninety Six, Hodges, Troy, Ware Shoals, and the City of Greenwood. Greenwood Gives FAQs for donors and nonprofits can be found on our HELP/FAQ page.
Greenwood County Community Foundation (GCCF) came into being when an anonymous donor provided a significant gift to start a local community foundation. This initiative was rooted in a belief that Greenwood County had an opportunity to increase charitable giving to all worthy causes and institutions and raise awareness of their needs. GCCF began operations in late 2011. The Foundation allows individuals to create personal named Funds for their charitable giving to local, national, and international causes. Grants from the Foundation’s unrestricted assets are made within four Focus Areas: Youth and Education, Community Enhancement, Innovation, and Open Granting.
