HISTORY
The Berkeley Hall Community has a rich history of philanthropy in the Lowcountry. The Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation vision is to "make a difference by addressing the basic human needs of the greater Bluffton Community, especially those who are most vulnerable." Our vision has been brought to life through the generosity and commitment of the Berkeley Hall membership and our common thread: the desire to make a difference in our community. 

From 2008 through 2016, through the extraordinary support and generosity of the Berkeley Hall membership, the Berkeley Hall Charitable Foundation (BHCF) has made 70 grants totaling more than $700,000 to fund projects that will improve the lives of Bluffton’s most vulnerable residents.

The Berkeley Hall Charitable Fund (BHCF) was established in 2010 under the umbrella of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry (CFL), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization located on Hilton Head Island. In 2014 the BHCF Fund established its own 501(c)(3) and is now administered by a voluntary Board of Trustees and the Berkeley Hall Board of Directors.

In 2015, our support for 17 local charities exceeded $136,000
