The Waccamaw Community Foundation, the Grand Strand’s leading philanthropic organization, will begin accepting applications for its Fall Mini-Grant Program on August 15.
Proposals for the Mini-Grants, which will be for up to $2,500 each, will be accepted through September 30 at www.WaccamaWCF.org. Only non-profit organizations in Horry and Georgetown counties that have not received WCF grants in 2022 are eligible to apply.
Grants are provided to the community by generous donors to the Waccamaw Community Trust, Elsie Beavers Carver and E. Lois Carver Education Fund and Waccamaw Community Foundation Educational Fund.
When the application window closes, WCF’s Granting Committee, comprised of area volunteers, will review and rank requests by the Foundation’s scoring framework.
Decisions on funding will be announced in December 2022 following approval by the Foundation’s Board of Directors.
“The Fall Mini-Grant Program is one of our new initiatives,” said Mike Mancuso, executive director of the WCF. “This program allows us to help non-profit organizations provide vital resources to our community around the Christmas season, when funds tend to be tighter. We look forward to helping as many organizations throughout the Grand Strand community as possible.”
