The Greenville Women Giving 2024 Grant Awardees are as follows:

South Carolina Children’s Theatre: $76,430 to create an inclusive theatre experience by purchasing assistive technology for individuals with sensory sensitivities. Technology purchased will include two live feed cameras and viewing screens for both theatre spaces, side tab curtains, and microphones, ensuring that everyone, regardless of their abilities, can enjoy the theatre.

Nicholtown Child And Family Collaborative: $100,000 over two years to support and expand the Nurturing Parenting Skills and Parent Café programs which offer free, family-based education to teen parents and adults. The programs introduce resources to cultivate economic mobility, encourage family stability and provide training for parents who have experienced past child abuse and neglect and are at a high-risk of repeating this cycle.

Loaves & Fishes: $100,000 over two years to cover the operating costs of four refrigerated trucks that deliver donated perishable produce to organizations which provide nutritious meals to 42,000 in Greenville County suffering from food insecurity. If unused, produce ends up in a landfill, producing harmful methane gas and dangerous chemical leakage into the groundwater. Expanded routes will keep more food out of the landfills and feed more people.

The Period Project: $80,000 to aid vulnerable women and girls with limited or no access to monthly menstrual products. Distribution of 12,100 period packs will improve the menstrual health of Greenville County women and girls experiencing period poverty.

Generations Group Homes: $50,000 to update the 32-year-old kitchen of this nationally accredited residential and psychiatric treatment facility for young boys who are victims of sexual abuse. The updated kitchen will allow the organization to serve nutritious meals, store frozen food, and to sanitize kitchen utensils properly.

Greenville Homeless Alliance: $97,125 to construct two tiny homes designed by Fine Arts Center high school architecture students, built by Soteria prison re-entry program participants, and rented to Soteria program graduates. This is the pilot phase of an innovative vision to create a mixed-income community for individuals re-entering society from incarceration and for people emerging from chronic homelessness.

We would like to thank Judson EventsWhite Wine and Butter and Liquid Catering for such a wonderful Annual Meeting.

Have a great summer — and be on the lookout for our annual report and preview of events for the 2024/2025 year.
