Foundation Spotlight

The Summer Foundation

Sponsored by SCANA, this Columbia based foundation gives primarily in South Carolina with an emphasis on health and education, with a special interest in early childhood education. The types of support they offer range from building and renovations and operational support to capital campaigns and sponsorships. In the past they have funded organizations such as Florence Crittenton and Girls Scouts of America. They have no formal application but do require a proposal including an IRS Determination Letter as well as a detailed description of the project and the amount requested.
