In the past year alone, the Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation has provided more than 11,000 high-need South Carolina students with musical and other resources to enhance their education through 99Papers.org.
Hootie & the Blowfish is again showing support for students in their home state, by asking you to fund classroom requests from South Carolina’s high-poverty schools along the I-95 corridor. You may remember that President Obama turned America’s attention to just one of these schools, J.V. Martin Junior High School in Dillon County, S.C., during his first State of the Union speech.
The Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation will fund 50% of eligible projects if someone like you provides the remainder. By completing this project, you will double the impact of your donation. Learn how this Double Your Impact grant works.
About The Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation
The Hootie & the Blowfish Foundation, established in 2000, is a private non-profit organization that was created in conjunction with the Hootie and the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Golf Tournament and benefits children of South Carolina through education and supporting school music programs nationwide.
Throughout their career, Mark Bryan, Dean Felber, Darius Rucker, and Jim Sonefeld have stayed true to their roots and worked hard to give something back to the community that has always supported them. By establishing a fund with the Central Carolina Community Foundation, Hootie and the Blowfish is creating an opportunity for grants to benefit the education of South Carolina’s children of today, and well into the future.
