Grants to South Carolina nonprofit organizations and government agencies for projects in land preservation and stewardship in the Lowcountry area. New applicants should contact the Foundation before applying. Funding may be used for general operations or projects; technical assistance; and program-related investments that lead to landscape-scale land preservation and stewardship. Strategic land conservation partnerships are encouraged and funded as well.
Funding may be used throughout the region, with a focus on five areas: ACE Basin, Charleston Greenbelt, North Lowcountry, Sewee to Santee, and South Lowcountry. Together, these areas span the entire coast.
To Protect and Restore:
There is a rich tradition of public and private land conservation throughout the Lowcountry. To date, more than a million and a quarter acres have been preserved along the South Carolina coast. Growth projections for the region, however, underscore the need to build upon these conservation gains. The Foundation supports organizations working to further increase the size and health of the Lowcountry’s protected areas on a landscape-scale. Occasionally, when opportunities arise to preserve lands of exceptional strategic significance, the Foundation offers Program Related Investments as bridge funding.
To Grow Stronger:
Protecting more natural areas and traditional working lands is a big job. Stewarding it long-term is an even bigger job. That’s why the Foundation offers general operating grants to sustain land conservation organizations, as well as capacity-building grants to help them meet expanded land conservation opportunities. The Foundation also encourages partnerships and collaborations to enhance the region's conservation goals.
To Advocate Change:
Some land conservation happens with easements or fee simple transactions, and some with teams of volunteer stewards. Some occurs at the policy level. For this reason, the Foundation supports strategic efforts to align regional planning and implementation with established land conservation goals.
