Many Greenville nonprofits in a cash crunch because of COVID-19

[Madeleine] McGee, executive director of Together SC, attributes that largely to Greenville having more philanthropic dollars. She also cited the COVID-specific dollars Greenville received due to its population.

"In allocating those COVID dollars  the local government said 'We're going to to make additional resources available to the nonprofit communities," McGee said. "So we think the greater health of their nonprofit community reflects that."

Nonprofits in Greenville County could apply as businesses for up to $5,000 or $10,000 in Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) funds, depending on their number of employees, according to Smith.

McGee said the statewide perspective for the report is needed partly because the state legislature is looking at the allocation of the remaining COVID dollars from the federal government.
