Today is Lowcountry Giving Day supporting area non-profits and encouraging you to support causes you believe in. At this time, 8:30ish pm 12,542 gifts totaling $3,781,564.92 has been raised for local charities and non-profits. I hope it will make a difference. I made donations to Water Missions International for the Nepal earthquake and to Barrier Island Free Medical Clinic. #liftthelowcountry
About Lowcountry Giving Day: Lowcountry Giving Day is our local 24-hour online giving challenge. This challenge is designed to encourage our friends and neighbors to support their favorite causes and organizations right here in the Lowcountry.
To celebrate the centennial of community foundations nationwide and Coastal Community Foundation’s 40th anniversary, we participated in a national effort, Give Local America, on May 6, 2014, to kickstart our first Lowcountry Giving Day, raising more than $4 million from thousands of donors for dozens of nonprofits.
