WAHHI Charitable Fund
Welcome 9 Philanthropy 9 WAHHI Charitable Fund

Since our founding in 1961, WAHHI has made generous donations to projects that benefit our community. In 2016, we established the WAHHI Charitable Fund administered by the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry. Since then, we have awarded grants to local nonprofits to support specific program needs for the community. The grants will encourage and recognize programs that respond to the ever-changing needs of our community through innovative approaches to meet community challenges. This year we are specifically wanting to support educational programs that aim to improve the lives of women and children. We urge you to be creative in your responses, i.e., can the program connect WAHHI women who wish to volunteer; is there an opportunity to collaborate on the project with other nonprofits?


All grant applications are required to meet three criteria:

  1. Applicant must have 501c3 status.
  2. Applicant must fit our area of focus as stated above.
  3. Applicant must serve our geographical area and have offices in the area. Our WAHHI geographical area as defined by our constitution is Hilton Head Island, Daufauskie Island, the town of Bluffton, and those communities that lie south and east of the intersection of HWY 170 and HWY 278.


Grant amounts will be up to $5000.00.
