Help Us Support Our Local Community

We are dedicated to meeting the needs and improving the lives of all members of the Greater Clemson Community by developing a long-term, stable source of philanthropic financial and human support.

Our Story

The Community Foundation of Greater Clemson was launched as the Clemson Community Foundation in 2013, as a project of Leadership Clemson, and was inspired by successes of community foundations in other cities and unmet funding needs in the Clemson area. We work to promote local philanthropy and volunteerism and to establish long-term sources of financial and human support to address needs in the greater Clemson area.

Our goal is to build permanent charitable capital that will allow us to be a long-term, stable resource for area communities.

We exist to improve the quality of life for all people living in the greater Clemson area. We do this primarily through support of local charities serving local communities.

Volunteering through the Community Foundation offers a chance to help our neighbors and make a huge impact where we live. Visit the "Local Charity Partners" tab for more information. Our community needs you!


Hello Neighbors!  Please join the Community Foundation of Greater Clemson’s Forever Campaign as we work to grow philanthropy, For Good, Forever. Since our beginning in 2013, the Community Foundation has worked to improve the quality of life for the members of this wonderful community.  We’ve provided approximately $150,000 in financial support to area organizations providing critical services to our neighbors. 


Because of neighbors like you, we have funded many projects benefiting those in need. These projects have been accomplished by a diverse group of nonprofit organizations that we are proud to support. With your help, we’re building a Charitable Investment Fund, so that we can provide financial resources to the Greater Clemson Community far into the future.


You soon may see a letter announcing our end-of-year Forever Campaign. We invite you to join us by responding to the letter or by visit our DONATE page to give directly.

The Thanksgiving season is a fitting time to take stock of our blessings and to share them with others.  Join our Forever Campaign and let’s work together to make our communities even better places to live.
