OUR  HISTORY

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 20+ years, Together SC would expand our diverse network, strengthening the state’s nonprofit community and bringing 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.
