Community Service – Hunger

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

The criteria for these grants are how well the organization promotes access and availability of good nutrition to the local community. The Community Service – Hunger grant committee looks at the specific community impact expected from use of the request for funds, how previous grants have served the intended group that is serviced or supported.  Other sources of funding are also considered.

The individual grants are submitted to all members of the committee for them to review and accept or deny the requested financial support.

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 any previous year’s grant from the Exchange Club affected their organization.

As a part of the process, the committee members are encouraged to visit the grantees to get a clear picture of the funds are intended tone used. If it is determined that the grant request does not have an impact on the disadvantaged residents of Johns and Wadmalaw Islands, the request not will be approved.
