The Gibbes Museum of Art recently received a $6,500 grant through the Employees Community Fund of Boeing South Carolina (ECF), which supports dozens of nonprofits in the Charleston area. The Gibbes will use the funds toward its visiting artist program, which promotes creativity and introduces new art forms while providing perspectives on larger community issues to connect artists with the public.

Boeing’s ECF is the largest employee-managed fund in the world. Since 2012, Boeing South Carolina teammates have given more than $1 million to local nonprofits through ECF.
