Greenville County residents are good people.  We know this, because they volunteer with us, they donate to us, and they participate in our programs and services. We are Greater Good Greenville, a network of local donors and local nonprofit organizations. Every day, we see the good in our community, and we see people hard at work to right wrongs and make things better. 

Sometimes, that work involves local government. But we’ve found that many Greenville County residents don’t know much about how local government works – both because it’s complicated and because they are busy living their day-to-day lives. 

Simple Civics: Greenville County aims to make local government easy. Each week, we take a topic related to local government and break it down for you, but short and sweet. We’ll bring in local experts to talk about timely topics. Our goal is to equip you and our members – philanthropic funders, nonprofit leaders, and residents who care about our community – to get involved in local government for the good of folks who live in Greenville County.

Greater Good Greenville galvanizes nonprofits, organizations, philanthropic funders, and mission-minded people for collaborative problem-solving and learning, advocacy, and joint investing to address our community’s challenges.
