Thanks to a partnership with the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, the Town has established three charitable funds, which are now formal channels to fund additional projects that benefit the community. The Town is proud to partner with the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry to manage these 501(c)(3) funds. The foundation manages more than 400 charitable funds, with combined assets of $86 million. CFL also manages nearly $88 million in grant and scholarship programs. CFL is the largest philanthropic resource in the region, serving residents in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper Counties.
The Bluffton Police Department Benevolence Fund
This fund will support the department’s mission, program, services, and outreach program, including its annual Toy Drive. The Bluffton Police Department accepts toy donations each November and December and, through Bluffton Self Help, delivers Christmas toys to children each year. This fund can be used to direct funds to other specific police programs, projects, and services.
