About CCF

The Clemson Community Foundation was launched in 2013 as a project of Leadership Clemson, and was inspired by a combination of the success of community foundations in other cities and the unmet funding needs in the Clemson area. As a community foundation, we work to provide philanthropy and establish long-term sources of funds for local needs, such as charitable nonprofit organizations in the Clemson area.

Due to the amazing generosity of the people in the Clemson community, we have been able to raise well over $200,000. With that money, we have funded a large number of projects benefiting people in need. These projects have been undertaken by a diverse variety of nonprofit organization that we are proud to work with. We have also put over $100,000 into a Charitable Investment Fund, so that we and other nonprofits can continue to serve the Clemson area long into the future.
