To be considered, organizations should have plans for a project to improve health, housing, hunger or educational issues. The deadline for applications is March 31.

The mission of the Long Cove Fund, administered through the Long Cove Fund Charitable Advisory Committee, is to encourage and support charitable giving by members of Long Cove Club and to provide grants to nonprofits in support of current needs in the areas of health, housing, hunger and education in Beaufort and Jasper Counties, with particular focus on projects and programs serving the Hilton Head Island and Bluffton communities.

The Long Cove Fund was created in 2003 by the directors of Long Cove Club in collaboration with the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry and from tax-deductible donations by Long Cove members. Grants are awarded in the name of the Long Cove Club Community to deserving, local nonprofit agencies.

Since its inception, $1,198,891 has been awarded to local nonprofits.
