Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina awards $74,700 to 35 Caritas Grantees

The Sisters of Charity Foundation of South Carolina recently awarded $74,700 in Caritas Grant funds to 35 non-profit and faith-based organizations meeting the immediate needs of the poor in South Carolina.

The purpose to the Caritas Grants program is to provide support to organizations dealing with situational poverty or crisis poverty. The demand for food, clothing, shelter and free health programs, as well as other immediate needs, is expanding for organizations providing these services. Caritas Grant awards are up to $5,000 for a one-year period and are designed for organizations with annual budgets of less than $600,000.

In omnibus caritas means “In all things charity.” Since its inception in 1851, the congregation of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine has sought to put into practice these simple but all-encompassing words. As a ministry of the Sisters of Charity Health System, the foundation offers annual Caritas Grant funds to organizations meeting the immediate needs of the poor.
