2016 Social Mission: Central Carolina Community Foundation

At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates community connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. We believe in the mission of CCCF—our 2016 Social Mission Partner. Please consider giving to them with your dollars and your time this year.

Central Carolina Community Foundation, the Midlands expert on philanthropy, is a nonprofit organization that links charitable people and businesses with areas of need in our community. Since their inception, they have awarded more than $100 million in grants through their stewardship of over 400 funds. Their mission is to promote, facilitate, and increase philanthropy to create a sustainable impact within the community through responsible giving. The Foundation serves donors and organizations in the following 11 counties in the Midlands: Calhoun, Clarendon, Fairfield, Kershaw, Lee, Lexington, Newberry, Orangeburg, Richland, Saluda and Sumter.

THE ONE SC FLOOD RELIEF FUND was established in response to the massive flooding that occurred across the state of South Carolina in October 2015. The Community Foundation’s board has provided initial funding of $50,000 and thousands of donations have been received from across the country. Governor Haley’s Original Six Foundation has donated $50,000 to underwrite administration of the fund. In addition, a matching challenge gift of $100,000 was donated by the Lipscomb Family Foundation. 100% of monies donated are going directly to local organizations aiding those in need. Grants will fund relief and recovery assistance programs provided by nonprofit organizations in the 24 FEMA designated emergency counties. Over 600 homes benefited from the work of the 24 organizations who received funding through the first two grant cycles. However, an estimated 28,000 individuals were impacted by the flood. The need is still great and each donation received will help continue the work of rebuilding South Carolina.
