Our latest newsletter focuses on education – donors and nonprofits making a difference in Horry and Georgetown Counties – as well as the latest news at Waccamaw Community Foundation.
Here’s a snapshot of this issue’s content:
- Giving Back through Scholarships: Paul and Sharon Malone were already community leaders when Sharon helped launch the Horry County Habitat for Humanity affiliate. They’ve built on that commitment with the Sharon Malone Scholarship for Habitat for Humanity, which awards funds to students from Habitat homes.
- A Letter from The Chairman: David Bishop gives a refresher course on what we mean when we say “connecting donors to the causes they care about.”
- Welcome Karen Minogue!: Karen started at Waccamaw in October as Director of Development. Reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org or (843) 357-4483.
- Year-End Giving: The deadline for year-end giving has already passed, but you can always contribute to Waccamaw Community Foundation by check, credit card, stock or other means. Give us a call to discuss giving options.
- More To Do for Flood Relief: The October flooding across our state did significant damage. We wanted to highlight the work of nonprofits helping to rebuild Horry and Georgetown Counties.
- Our Education Funding: An overview of our scholarship funds and the Elsie Beavers Carver and E. Lois Carver Educational Fund, which supports nonprofits working on education.
- Grantee Spotlight – Pee Dee Teen Improvement Project: Pee Dee’s math program recently received grant funding from WCF. We visited them again to tell the story of their program’s creation, stretching back more than 40 years.
