Connecting donors to causes they’re passionate about — that’s what Coastal Community Foundation (CCF) does. The nonprofit aims to create communities rich in equity, opportunity, and well-being by uniting people and investing resources where it matters most. One of those places of investment is The Charles Webb/Ed Croft Endowment Fund, which awards grants to nonprofits that strive to improve the lives of children with special needs.

The fund, created with Coastal Community Foundation in 1997, has granted $1.7 million to 60 nonprofit organizations in the Tri-County area. Charles Webb became an advocate for children with special needs after his son contracted polio in 1928 at age four. Charles and his friend Ed Croft then partnered with the Rotary Club of Charleston to create an organization to fight to eradicate polio and provide services to disabled children.

Meet one of the organizations that benefits from the Webb/Croft fund: Camp Rise Above. This nonprofit provides camps and family fun days for children + adults with special needs, disabilities, and medical challenges — at no cost to families (thanks to grants like this).
