2018 Grantee Celebration

In 2018, the Mary Black Foundation invested over $3 million in grants and special initiatives through its three funding areas: Early Childhood Development, Healthy Eating and Active Living, and the Community Health Fund.  Last week, we celebrated all of the organizations that received new grants from the Foundation in 2018, along with many additional community partners. We are proud to support so many different organizations that are working to create a healthier, more educated, and more vibrant community and we are thankful for the tremendous work that these organizations do throughout Spartanburg.
