So if a person is 35 years old or younger and lives in South Carolina, if they want to feed their community, if they’re going to host a march, if they’re going to register voters, they will be eligible for all of our BLK Grants.

How are grant winners selected?


BLM-SC grant winners are selected through a random, sweepstakes-style drawing of everyone who completed the action steps and verified their participation in the campaign. Everyone who applies and participates in 3 or more BLM-SC or a local county BLM chapter meeting or event has an equal chance of earning a grant, though, on some campaigns, those who make more impact will earn additional chances to win the grant or the chance at other prizes. Winners will be individually notified via email or phone call within 20 days of the grant application close. Winners of each grant will typically be announced to the public 1-4 weeks after the close of the grant application.
