Charleston Area Nonprofit Directory

Nonprofit DirectoryThe graduate assistants at the Community Assistance Program have created a Nonprofit Directory that catalogs nonprofits in the Charleston Area. This directory is intended to be a resource for nonprofit collaboration. It is our hope that this directory will lessen redundancy of nonprofit services and help nonprofits to locate other service providers. It is also hoped, on an individual level, that this document can be used as an academic resource to find service providers, to encourage charitable giving, and to encourage volunteering. This directory is intended to be used in tandem with or to augment other resources. While this directory has a vast majority of the nonprofits in Charleston, there are other organizations such as cause-based for-profits and government-based organizations that are not included in this directory but may be useful in one's search.

The Charleston Metro Area has a total of 794 nonprofits; these nonprofits were broken down into twenty-seven categories The largest two categories were Philanthropy, Foundations, and Trusts with 172 (22 percent) of the total and Faith Based Organizations with 139 (18 percent) of the total. The other roughly 60 percent remaining is broken up between the remaining twenty-five categories. Art, Music, and Theatre is the third largest category counting for six percent. Schools and Education trail at five and four percent, respectively.
