What is the Spartanburg Community Indicators Project?

Spartanburg Community Indicators Project presents data and engages the community in dialogue and strategy that leads to positive change in Spartanburg County, South Carolina. The project facilitates organizations and individuals as they actively promote civic prosperity by using community indicator data to inform and guide their progress.

 

The Project is a collaboration of The Spartanburg County Foundation, United Way of the Piedmont, Spartanburg County, University of South Carolina Upstate, Mary Black Foundation and Spartanburg Regional Foundation.  We partner with Indicator Area Leaders in the community to improve outcomes in each of our six Indicator Areas.
