CVSC Education Fund works to turn environmental values into state and local priorities. We advocate for strong environmental protections, organize with communities to speak out about environmental priorities, and build strong and effective coalitions in order to enact strong environmental laws. CVSCEF uses educational tools to connect communities all over South Carolina and ensure the protection of clean air, land, and water in our state.

You can take steps now to ensure that your legacy is one of fighting for the environment and communities across South Carolina. Supporters like you often tell us, “I wish I could do more.” Leaving a gift for CVSC or CVSC Education Fund in your estate plans can ensure that your values live on for generations.

We recommend you consult with your financial or legal advisor to identify the best approach to giving based on your personal circumstances; we are available to work with you and your advisors. To leave a gift for the environment in your will, trust, or other planned giving instrument, the following language will be helpful to provide to and review with your advisor to ensure that the organization is clearly identified:
