Our Purpose

At the Bunnelle Foundation, we take a three-pronged approach to our work:

  1. We make grants to nonprofit organizations that help us meet our mission of improving the quality of life for Georgetown County residents.
  2. We collaborate with partners in various initiatives, including Education to Career (E2C), Pathways 2 Possibilities (P2P), and an Internship program. Through E2C, we are working to create opportunity for young people by engaging businesses and other entities that are challenged to find the local workforce they need. The P2P Career Expo supports this effort, as does the Internship program.
  3. We build community by listening to, learning from, and serving our local nonprofits. We offer high-quality trainings, and we make available state-of-the-art meeting space. We help them broaden their fundraising reach through Palmetto Giving Day, and we supply expert facilitators to several collaborative efforts across the county.
