As a major presence in the business community of Columbia, South Carolina, for over 150 years, we have had the pleasure of maintaining a longstanding commitment to serving our community. In addition to supporting our charity of choice, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, we are active in a wide variety of philanthropic efforts with the goal of supporting and improving the quality of life for others and keeping our community strong, diverse and vibrant.
Seibels Charitable Giving Program, focuses on making charitable donations to organizations as they speak to the hearts and interests of our employees, align with our corporate responsibility strategy and business goals, and support our primary focus areas of disaster recovery, human services, community enrichment, economic development and education.

We believe that we can make the greatest impact by way of two types of donations: Seibels Community Impact Donations and Seibels Charitable Event Sponsorships. If your organization or project meets our corporate giving criteria, we encourage you to submit a request.
