Request For Funding

Founded in 2020, the Parker’s Community Fund was created by a generous donation from Greg Parker and Parker’s to give back to the communities that have supported Parker’s and its subsidiaries for the past 45 years. To achieve that goal, the Parker’s Community Fund has identified four areas of focus:

Education – Healthcare – Hunger – Heroes

Parker’s Community Fund is now accepting requests for Hero’s.

Hero charities are anyone supporting active duty military, veterans, and or first responders. To see if you or your organization qualifies, please reach out to Olivia Parker at oparker@parkersav.com.

The Parker’s Community Fund awards grants to qualifying nonprofit organizations demonstrating positive, measurable impact in one or more of our key focus areas: Education, Healthcare, Heroes and Hunger.

For the current funding cycle, we are seeking to make a transformative impact for our Hero’s. Please think BIG when you submit your application for funding. We are open to requests for capital improvements, expansions and other endowment opportunities designed to make a positive impact in the communities we serve in southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina.

To qualify for consideration, funding requests should meet the following qualifications:

  • Awards are one-time grants only.

  • Requests for events or other sponsorships, general operating support (other than program expansions to serve projects), or multi-year projects will not be considered.

  • The organization is a nonprofit corporation with tax-exempt status as a charitable organization under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code

  • The organization can provide financial statements.

  • The organization operates within Parker’s Community Fund’s service area of southeast Georgia and coastal South Carolina.

  • The organization operates under the direction of a voluntary, policy-making Board of Directors.

  • The organization operates in compliance with the USA Patriot Act, Federal Non-Discrimination Standards and does not discriminate based on race or ethnicity, religion, military or veteran status, disability, gender, age or sexual orientation.

 

Our funding cycle is currently open for hero requests only. Requests must be submitted by January 31, 2023 at 5 p.m. ET. All requests will be reviewed by the Parker’s Community Fund Board of Directors once the cycle has closed.
