Community Service – Health

Community Service – Health Grants are given to not for profit (501c3) local organizations that provide services to Johns and Wadmalaw Island’s

Types of organizations that have been supported in the past include the direct provision of medical and treatments.

The Community Service – Hunger committee is established for the purpose of reviewing grants submitted by local organizations.  The individual grants requests are submitted to all members of the committee for  reviewal and acceptance or denial of the request.

Criteria required is that the organization promotes and facilitates the wellness of the less fortunate of the Johns and Wadmalaw Island communities.  The grant application needs to include a community impact statement as well as what other donation sources the grantee can rely upon. The grantee also needs to supply information on how a previous year’s grant from the Exchange Club affected their organization.  The grantee’s mission must fit the Exchange Club’s mission goals.

Grants are reviewed in committee. Committee members are encouraged to visit the grantees to get a clear picture of what the grantee’s needs are and if the request will fill those needs. If it is determined that the grantee’s request does not have an impact on the low-income residents of Johns and Wadmalaw Islands, the request will be denied.
