Something else to celebrate on the 4th
In the past month the Edie, Richard, Sonny, and Sydney at Coastal Community Foundation have responded to suggestions by donors and grant-making committees and have sent more than $2,000,000 to charities. While not a record, this is more than we have distributed in a single month since December. June 2012 tops off a fiscal year during which grant checks from Coastal Community Foundation once again are near historic highs. But perhaps there is more to celebrate... Eighty-seven percent of the Foundations that distribute money in South Carolina expect that their giving will not drop in the coming year, 44% expect it to increase. Maybe today is Independence Day from the recession-fighting, defensive stance of charitably-minded folks too?
