SOUTH CAROLINA – (October 31, 2022) The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina has awarded grants totaling $837,000 to 100 nonprofit organizations throughout the Palmetto State, including three national groups serving South Carolina statewide. Each organization is working to better the lives of those experiencing poverty in South Carolina.

Since 1996, the Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina has awarded over 3,300 grants to South Carolina nonprofits totaling over $82 million.

“It is an honor to support this group of nonprofit partners who are working tirelessly to provide hope for people experiencing poverty in South Carolina,” Foundation President and CEO, Donna Waites says. “Our foundation’s mission could not be fulfilled without these impactful organizations and their loving service to others.”

The latest round of grants was awarded to nonprofits that are working to reduce poverty in South Carolina in one of three ways:
