Humanities Foundation is pleased to announce the recent $10,000 grant award from the Employees Community Fund of Boeing South Carolina. We are most grateful for this support of our ShelterNet program. The funds will be used to provide emergency financial assistance to very low-income families and individuals in the Tri-county area around Charleston. By helping with past due rent and utilities, ShelterNet prevents the people in these households from becoming homeless or helps them to return to stable housing if they are already homeless.
The Employees Community Fund of Boeing South Carolina is a unique employee giving program that allows employees to support the needs of the local community in an impactful way. Since 2011, Boeing teammates have given nearly $1 million to Charleston-area nonprofits through the ECF, and have volunteered more than 8,000 times for more than 500 community projects since 2011.
