Our Grantee Partners

We have given over 1.4 million dollars to more than 70 local nonprofits for their projects over the past ten years. Through the generosity of our donors, we have been able to foster growth and collaboration among all of our partners. 

Featured Grantee Partners:



One of our partners doing great work on the mountain is BetterFi. This organization is a non-profit economic justice enterprise, with a mission to provide equitable financial services and coaching as a pathway out of predatory loans. BetterFi was recognized for Most Significant Innovation by the Corporation for National and Community Service in 2019. SCCF has been its partner all along the way making grants to build out BetterFi's financial literacy programs and supporting VISTA members who have built the capacity of the organization.

Our support has helped BetterFi’s clients in our community get loans at reasonable cost, build their credit scores, and improve their ability to access traditional loans and banking services. And the folks at BetterFi are just good people. As Sandy Nunley, a BetterFi client, puts it, “I have never called BetterFi without someone answering and getting back to me quickly, and I’ve not been put on hold or stuck listening to a long message. You’re stressed anyway, and to have to also go through all that it’s crazy.”
