Mission

Our mission is to create a community of giving for life.

Purpose

We seek to invest in organizations and hospital departments that are committed to the health and wellness needs of Upstate residents.

Grantees are our partners and it is through our partnership that our mutual goals in health care are realized. Grants allow the Foundation to fund projects at Spartanburg Regional Health System (SRHS) and to address health and wellness needs of Upstate residents.

Spartanburg Regional Foundation offers grant assistance to programs that are clearly health-related and fall within the Spartanburg Regional Service Area(s). While the Foundation is primarily a health system foundation, funds are available to community organizations committed to the health and wellness needs of Upstate residents.

Grant Eligibility Requirements

Do you meet the following criteria to apply for funding?

    1. Spartanburg Regional Foundation considers only those organizations that are recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)3 charitable non-profit and/or tax exempt entities. Funded organizations must not discriminate on the basis of age, race, national origin, ethnicity, gender, religious belief or physical ability.
    2. The Spartanburg Regional Foundation offers grant assistance to projects/programs that are clearly health and wellness related and falls within the Spartanburg Regional Healthcare System service area(s).
    3. The grant project is to be completed within twelve months.
    4. Grant awards have no minimum and maximum amount; however, community requests should not exceed 25% of total available ($32,300).
