Giving back: It’s the Greenville Way

There are an estimated 1,600 non-profit groups in Greenville County.

And there are roughly 500,000 people. With that kind of math, each nonprofit should be up to its ears in volunteers and funding if every person in Greenville gave. Unfortunately, not every one of them gives. Most don’t.

But a lot do. Greenville is a giving community. It’s like that old Tina Turner song (Ok, Ike and Tina…ok, ok, originally Credence Clearwater Revival, but Tina’s version is best known) about if you don’t have any money, you don’t have to worry, people on the river are happy to give. I will let you sing the rest of Proud Mary in your head before I start typing again.

And we’re back. Greenville is a community built on volunteerism. It is part of the community’s DNA. And we want it to be part of the Locally Epic DNA.  That is why we offering the Locally EPIC to any non-profit organization in Greenville for free. Free? FREE!

Yes, free. No access fees. No hidden charges. No cost. Just free. We want you to use it to find volunteers. We want you to use it to find donors. We want you to find it to help your mission. We are doing this because we believe in Greenville.

This Thursday at 8 a.m., we will be showing nonprofits from across the region how to learn more about using the app. Please join us. Sign up here.
