One SC Fund awards more than $313,000
More than $4.8 million distributed to nonprofits since fund’s inception
Awards for hurricane relief and disaster preparation
The One SC Fund Committee awarded $313,344 in grants to 11 organizations across South Carolina for disaster relief and recovery projects in the fall 2019 grant cycle.
To date, the One SC Fund—established by former Gov. Nikki Haley in November 2015 after the Thousand Year Flood to help South Carolinians who are recovering from a disaster—has awarded more than $4.86 million in grants to nonprofits to support disaster recovery projects across the state and helped more than 2,400 families return home.
The fund is housed and administered by Central Carolina Community Foundation. The foundation does not charge fees for this work, ensuring that 100% of monies donated are granted to local nonprofits providing disaster relief and recovery.
“The One SC Fund has helped thousands of South Carolinians affected by disaster return home during the past four years,” said JoAnn Turnquist, president and CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation. “We’re grateful for the many generous donors who have helped these families and individuals.”
No arts organizations were part of this round of awards, but nonprofit arts organizations are eligible to receive funding. Find information about applying for grants at www.yourfoundation.org/OneSCGrants. The next round of applications will be accepted from Feb. 1-29, 2020.
There is still much work required to rebuild South Carolina from recent disasters—work that will require funding. Donations to the One SC Fund are being accepted and will help continue the work of serving those impacted by past, current, and future disasters that hit our state. 100% of monies donated will be granted to local nonprofits providing disaster relief and recovery.
