Foundation of the Lowcountry

A former Crown Growth Partners employee and Wall Street professional, Geoff Block manages operations at the Bluffton, South Carolina-based property firm RLB Squared. Outside of the professional arena, Geoff Block supports a range of philanthropic initiatives including the Lowcountry Strong Foundation of the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry.

Located on South Carolina’s Hilton Head Island, the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry is a tax-exempt non-profit organization that seeks to assist Beaufort, Colleton, Hampton, and Jasper County families according to their individual needs. Its grant-making initiatives help to foster economic prosperity and build create vibrant neighborhoods.

The Community Foundation also helps local young people reach their academic and professional goals through its online scholarship directory. It established this directory in 2001 as a hardcopy print directory as a courtesy for fellow scholarship providers and a resource for regional students. The Community Foundation moved the directory online four years later and has expanded exponentially ever since.

The directory currently features summaries of more than 50 scholarships. These scholarships are administered by the Community Foundation as well as outside sources including various governmental and military programs.
