Impact Information Sessions provide an opportunity for nonprofit organizations with programs in our service area to learn about the Community Foundation and our grantmaking initiatives. The sessions include a review of Community Investment Office programs, grantmaking eligibility requirements and funding priorities.


Impact Information Sessions are required for organizations that are interested in applying for one of our grants. Applicants will learn about the types of grants that we offer, basic criteria, and the current grant timeline. Grantseekers are required to attend an Impact Information Session within twelve months of applying for a CFL grant to ensure awareness of any changes that have occurred since the last time they applied.

Impact Information Sessions are generally held in the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry conference room. The format of these sessions does not work well in a virtual or hybrid format. We strongly encourage grantseekers to attend a session in person when possible. It is a great place to network with other nonprofits and to share information about the work you are doing in community. Very often, collaborations are started in this setting.

If you are unable to attend in person, you can schedule a private session. Availability is limited. You must book ahead of time here:

Sessions start at 12:00 noon. Please bring your lunch or a snack with you. Drinks will be provided.

* December 2023 through March 2024 Impact Information Sessions are being held off-site, due to the CFL office renovation. Please contact CFL staff for the location of each session.
