C.G. Fuller Foundation Scholarship

Mr. C. G. Fuller was born in Ohio and moved to Barnwell, South Carolina in the 1930’s.  Owning only a dump truck, Mr. Fuller entered the road construction business, by which he became very successful.  By the time Mr. Fuller died in 1972 he had amassed considerable wealth.  Having no children of his own to inherit his fortune, Mr. Fuller created the C. G. Fuller Foundation.  One of the purposes of the Foundation is to provide scholarships for worthy South Carolina students.  Mr. Fuller had not been able to attend college, yet he recognized the value of a college education.  He therefore wanted to help other young people attend college, who would not be able to without assistance.  Mr. Fuller also believed in supporting his community.  The Foundation has made grants to Carolina Children’s Home, Epworth Children’s Home, Barnwell County Hospital, Barnwell County Library, Barnwell County Museum & Historical Board, Richland County Public Library and numerous other community grants in his honor.
