Eastern Carolina Community Foundation serves Chesterfield, Darlington, Dillon, Florence, Marlboro, Marion, and Williamsburg counties.




Thanks to our donors and fund holders, over $10,000 is being distributed to area nonprofits from our Designated Funds!


Some of the grant areas of support include arts and culture, environment, youth development, and health and human services.

Designated Funds are established to benefit a specific charity, church, or qualifying organization. Each year, the Foundation automatically distributes a grant to the organization designated by the donor at the time the fund was established. If you are looking for a wonderful way to support a charitable organization that you love, a Designated Fund at ECCF may be the perfect plan!
