To determine if your organization should apply for funding from the Mary Black Foundation, first review information about our Focus Areas: Early Childhood Development, Healthy Eating | Active Living, and the Community Health Fund.
We consider grantmaking to be an investment in Spartanburg, SC that will contribute to improved health, wellness, and success. Therefore, we seek to invest in strong, well-run organizations that are clear about what results they will achieve and how the results will be measured.

Applications are reviewed by our staff and Board of Trustees. We often visit applicant organizations during the review process in order to learn about the proposal first hand. In addition, we may contact your organization’s partners and funders during our review process. The review process takes approximately 75 days. You will be contacted as soon as a decision is reached. At any point in the process, please do not hesitate to contact the Foundation with your questions or concerns.
