As you probably know, the Coastal Community Foundation helps nonprofits throughout the region.

Well they're holding a video competition to show off the Beaufort Fund that makes $500,000 available to 57 groups in Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper counties. While the prize for the groups is little more than a badge of honor, the real prize is aimed at the community and is a chance to learn more about great local service organizations in our area.

To help get the videos across, we'll feature two videos per day and point you over to the voting page on the final day of the competition, Friday, February 11, at noon (in fact, we'll probably hook you up with a voting link on Thursday.)

The top three videos will be presented at The Beaufort Fund Grant Reception on February 18th from 5 to 7 p.m. at Beaufort City Hall and a Flip Video camera will be awarded to the nonprofit with the most votes. 

Up first are … drumroll please (videos at the bottom):

The Beaufort County Arts Council who applies the many creative tools of the arts to strengthen artists and toenrich audiences, collectors, and visitors through high quality arts experiences and arts education programs, and

CAPA (Child Abuse Prevention Association) who provides prevention and intervention programs targeted at breaking the cycle of child abuse by aiding itsvictims – primarily for children from Beaufort County, but also serving children in Hampton, Jasper and ColletonCounties. CAPA’s mission is to provide an integrated system of support, education, services and advocacy tocommunity members to strengthen families.

Tune in here for the next videos, or just check the front page Tuesday at noon.
