Whatever your giving goals, Waccamaw Community Foundation can help you achieve them.
By offering a variety of funds, Waccamaw Community Foundation helps donors connect with the causes and organizations they care about most. Some of our donors choose to designate their funds to specific organizations, while others start field-of-interest funds, opening funding to any organization that meet certain criteria.
Other donors set up scholarship funds to help local students in need to attend college. Endowed funds last in perpetuity, continuing your philanthropic legacy forever. We work directly with donors, financial planners and attorneys to help make charitable giving simple.
