Help South Carolina’s students access the full benefits of education

We partner with individuals, businesses, foundations, and community non-profit organizations across South Carolina on a national, state and local level. Each of our supporters are essential to our ability to provide the resources students need to thrive and succeed in school and in life. Our partners are given the opportunity to connect with purpose to others in their workplace while also impacting the lives of an incredible group of underserved students across the state. Thank you to all the supporters who help make our work possible.

When you partner with CIS, you help:

  • Connect students with evidence-based programs and community-based support
  • Students reach their full potential while in school and prepare for a bright future beyond high school graduation
  • Advance our programs in schools and communities across South Carolina
  • Make Illuminate CISSC and other fundraising events possible
  • Expand our footprint across South Carolina schools and communities
  • Continuously improve the programs that support at-risk K-12 students and their families
