Celebrating 25 Years


In 1997, Together SC (known then as South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations (SCANPO) began operating with 67 chartered member organizations, providing regional meetings and workshops. One year later, a toll-free hotline was created to offer timely assistance to the growing membership.

Over the next 25 years, Together SC expanded our diverse network, strengthened the state’s nonprofit community and brought together leaders from organizations who believe in Together SC’s vision to have a united, trusted, and effective nonprofit community working to enrich the lives of all South Carolinians.

Together SC

Together SC serves the thousands of South Carolinians dedicated to community service, leadership, and caring through nonprofit and philanthropic organizations.
