Grantmaker Partners

SCANPO aims to work closely with the state's many United Ways, community foundations as well as corporate and private foundations, for we all share a common goal of advancing South Carolina's nonprofit community.

Our many grantmaking members consider SCANPO a strong ally in meeting the needs of their grantees and the communities they served. We are grateful for their partnership and support.


Dues levels are based on total grants (or annual distribution) made in South Carolina during the previous fiscal year. Annual membership is for twelve months from the date dues are paid. Dues may be paid online.
