The following 8 nonprofit organizations will receive Phase Five grants from the One SC Fund:

To date, the One SC Fund, established by former Governor Nikki Haley in November 2015 after the thousand-year flood to help South Carolinians who are recovering from a disaster, has awarded $2,268,000 in grants to nonprofits to support flood recovery projects across our state, helping more than 1,123 families return home. In October 2016, the fund was expanded to provide relief and recovery assistance to those impacted by Hurricane Matthew.

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 continue the work of serving those impacted by disasters that have hit the state.
