Find out what drives us to do what we do.


Orangeburg County Community of Character exists to INSPIRE (citizens to take responsibility for their decisions and actions), MOTIVATE (citizens to make a difference in the world around them), and to RECOGNIZE (citizens for exhibiting excellence in character).  

1999  – A concept is shared ...  and a grass roots effort begins. 


2000  –  County wide support ensues with all 17 municipalities and the County itself signing resolutions in support of the character initiative.


February 2004  – Orangeburg County Community of Character By-Laws are adopted and we obtain 501(c)(3) status.
