The Spartanburg County Foundation awarded $101,500 in grants to 12 nonprofit organizations working to improve the overall social well-being of Spartanburg County residents. Project HOPE Foundation was one for the recipients recognized at an awards ceremony Tuesday, November 10, 2015, at The Spartanburg County Foundation. Project HOPE Foundation's $10,000 grant will be used to help install a camera/security system at a recently renovated home where life skills are taught to clients with autism.
Each year, The Spartanburg County Foundation trustees set an unrestricted budget from The Community Fund and a partnership of other funds to award grants to nonprofit organizations and institutions providing services to the residents of Spartanburg County. For the past two years, the Foundation has focused its grantmaking efforts on the areas of Education and Social Environment, two of the Indicator Areas identified through the Spartanburg Community Indicators Project.
Having awarded more than $129 million in grants since its inception, the Foundation’s president and CEO, Troy Hanna, shared, “The funds from this responsive grant cycle will equip these nonprofit organizations with the capacity building tools needed to further their mission and make an impact on our community.”
