Lift the Lowcountry on May 6, 2014

On May 6  Coastal Community Foundation will present a special day of giving in the Lowcountry. Through the generosity of the Pearlstine Family and several anonymous donors, gifts to selected non-profits  will be amplified, expanding the financial impact of each gift and creating the opportunity for a truly transformative day.

Lift the Lowcountry is part a larger national effort called Give Local America. It's aim is to encourage us all to make gifts that support causes we care about in our community.  Part contest, part referendum, all good with over 100 community foundations nationwide working in concert to celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the founding of the first community foundation.  All are united in promoting generosity where we live and work.
