When Disaster Strikes

The Disaster Recovery and Rebuilding Fund was established to collect monetary contributions to support disaster response, recovery, and rebuilding grantmaking to eligible regional, community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits, faith-based organizations or equivalents responding to community needs in the aftermath of an officially-declared disaster.

When government officials declare a disaster in our service area – Beaufort, Jasper, Hampton and/or Colleton Counties – a community-based advisory committee is authorized to review and recommend grants for eligible agencies that provide services to people during the recovery and rebuilding phases of disaster relief.
