COMMUNITY FOUNDATION RELEASES DISASTER RECOVERY & REBUILDING FUND GRANT GUIDELINES The Community Foundation of the Lowcountry will soon begin awarding grant dollars to eligible nonprofit organizations which are responding to community needs in the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew. The Community Foundation has already distributed $50,000 to several front-line organizations, including American Red Cross (Lowcountry Chapter), Bluffton Self Help and Deep Well Project. To be eligible for a Disaster Recovery and Rebuilding Grant: • An organization must be a regional, community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit faith-based organization, or equivalent that serves Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton or Colleton Counties. • The project must meet needs not filled by state, federal or other nonprofit agencies. An advisory committee made up of local government, business and community leaders, will be authorized to review grant applications and recommend grants. Recommended grants will be approved by the Community Foundation’s board of directors, executive committee or president/CEO. The maximum amount per grant is $20,000, unless a memorandum of understanding is already in place. Some organizations may be eligible for multiple grants based on documented community needs. For specific grant guidelines and forms, please visit our website at www. cf-lowcountry.org. Additional questions can be directed to Kevin Smith, Vice President for Grantmaking and Community Leadership, at 843-681-9100. November 2016 41
