Women in Philanthropy

Bluffton Self Help is proud to receive a grant from Women in Philanthropy to support the financial assistance program for elderly and handicapped facing costs associated with extreme weather conditions.  This grant will make funds available in October 2016 for this purpose.

Women in Philanthropy is a dedicated group of local women who are making a difference in the Lowcountry through the power of collective giving. Since their founding in 2003, they have built an endowment of over $1 million and, since 2006, they have awarded $299,000 in grants to nonprofit organizations throughout Beaufort County. In 2016 they awarded grants totaling $83,000 in support of “Providing Safe Shelter for our Citizens: Crisis, Temporary and Permanent.”
Women in America are changing the face of philanthropy. With more money and increased control and influence over how it is spent, more women than ever are making philanthropic investments to help address and solve the problems of our time.

01 2016 Grants RecepientsThe volunteers of St. Francis Thrift Store on Hilton Head Island work hard all year long to generate funds to support local nonprofit organizations.  This year the check presentation ceremony was held on Tuesday, June 21 and Bluffton Self Help was one of the organizations to be awarded funds.  This grant will support Bluffton Self Help’s financial emergency assistance program that helps our neighbors pay utility bills and rent/mortgage bills when an emergency prevents them from paying these bills.  The funds also support child care, medical expenses and dental needs, to name just a few.  Because of these funds, Bluffton Self Help will continue to offer basic human services to local neighbors in Bluffton, SC.

St. Francis Thrift Store offers clothing, household goods, books and miscellaneous other items, all donated by the community.  It is affiliated with St. Francis By the Sea Catholic Church.  The thrift store is located at 6 Southward Park Drive, Hilton Head Island, SC and is open from 10 am to 4 pm Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays and from 10 am to 3 pm on Saturdays.  The store is closed on Sundays and Mondays. (Have to give those amazing volunteers some time off.)
