SCELP, as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, is almost entirely funded by generous contributions of individuals, private foundations and other grant-making organizations.

  • Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation
  • The Coastal Community Foundation (CCF)
  • Frances P. Bunnelle Foundation
  • The Beaufort Fund of the CCF
  • The Johanna Foundation
  • Jolley Foundation
  • The Graham Foundation
  • Spaulding Paolozzi Foundation
  • South Carolina Bar Foundation
  • The Butler Conservation Fund
  • The Yawkey Foundation
