Nonprofit software and services provider Blackbaud has made a $20,000 donation to the Daniel Island Community Fund (DICF) to financially support education initiatives at Cainhoy Elementary/Middle School.
DICF has also made a matching donation, leading the school to receive $40,000 for the 2016-17 school year.
“The Daniel Island Community Fund is thrilled that Blackbaud has joined us in supporting the Cainhoy Elementary and Middle School in its quest to increase educational opportunities for its students and faculty," Jane Baker, VP of community services for the Daniel Island Property Owners' Association, said.
DICF has teamed up with businesses in the past to give Cainhoy access to things such as field trips, World Class Scholars program, Reading Buddies and summer enrichment programs.
"We are so very grateful for the contribution Blackbaud and the Daniel Island Community Fund has made to our school," Cainhoy Elementary/Middle School Interim Principal Cassandra Jennings said. "The money undoubtedly will provide so many more opportunities for the students at Cainhoy Elementary/Middle. Blackbaud’s and the Daniel Island Community Fund’s contributions signify the community’s commitment to the students in this community."
Cainhoy Elementary/Middle School is located in Huger and is part of the Berkeley County School District.
