The Waccamaw Community Foundation offers students many different scholarship opportunities. Through the generosity of our donors, we have awarded more than $24 million in grants since the Foundation was established in 1999. We aim to continue that legacy by helping donors of the Waccamaw Region connect with causes they care about. We serve people who share a common concern: improving quality of life in local counties.
