United By Loss, Bound By Love

The Byrnes Scholars logo.

The logo above represents key qualities of The Byrnes Foundation and The Byrnes Scholarships.

  • the Palmetto tree indicates that The Byrnes Scholarships are awarded to South Carolinians.
  • the twisted trunk of the tree indicates that scholarships are awarded to orphans or half-orphans.
  • United By Loss represents the special, unifying bond each Byrnes Scholar shares due to the death of a parent or parents.
  • Bound By Love represents the fellowship, compassion and love shared by Byrnes Scholars.
  • Est. 1948 indicates the year The Byrnes Foundation was established.

The logo was designed by Roxann Wrightson, 1980 Scholar, and Audrey Sligh Brown, 1985 Scholar.

Donate To The Foundation

In return for their generosity and support, Mom and Pop Byrnes asked only two things from us: become the very best people we could become in life, and make sure their legacy of family continues for those who come after us.

Please consider making a tax deductible contribution to the James F. Byrnes Foundation to secure its ability to invite more deserving young women and men to join the Byrnes family, both now and in the future. The Donate button will take you to the Paypal site where you can use your credit card or Paypal account to make a secure, one-time donation or set up a monthly recurring donation.
