Columbia, SC - Treasurer Curtis Loftis, the Unclaimed Property Program, and the South Carolina Association of Non-Profit Organizations all came together to help return unclaimed property to non-profits across the state.

"I know that every dollar counts when it comes to non-profits," said Treasurer Loftis. "I'm so grateful SCANPO allowed us to come in and find money for the organizations. It's amazing to return money to people who strive to help others."
