Our History

         *DONATE NOW*


The Fund for Southern Communities (FSC) was established as a tax-exempt public foundation in 1981 by a small group of individuals to fund issues and organizations left void by traditional charities and private foundations. This founding body held a common vision for the South: to build safe, equitable communities that are free of oppression and that embrace and celebrate all people.

Today, FSC works with donors to distribute more than a quarter of a million dollars a year to organizations in Georgia, North Carolina, and South Carolina who are making this vision a reality. Since 1981, the Fund has awarded over 1700 grants totaling nearly $5 million.
