One SC Fund, SC Flood Relief
In response to the devastating floods in our region, the Central Carolina Community Foundation established the One SC Fund, formerly the SC Flood Relief Fund.
The fund has been endorsed by the Midlands Regional Mayors and has received financial support from corporations, foundations and individuals across the Midlands and our state.
On November 16th, Governor Haley announced her endorsement of the flood fund. The role of the fund is to help bridge the funding gap in order to rebuild our state and help folks resume their lives.
The Governor has recruited a team of notable South Carolinians who are helping promote giving to the fund, including David Beasley, Tajh Boyd, Stephen Colbert, Jay Hass, Marcus Lattimore, Edwin McCain, Bob McNair, Craig Melvin, Chris Randolph, Jerry Richardson, Joe Riley, Darius Rucker, Steve Spurrier, Dawn Staley, Dabo Swinney and Anita Zucker.
The One SC Flood Relief Fund will support nonprofit organizations providing relief and recovery assistance in the 24 FEMA designated emergency counties. The Community Foundation’s board provided the initial funding of $50,000 and additional donations are being received from across the country. The Governor’s Original Six Foundation has donated $55,000 to underwrite administration of the fund so that 100% of the dollars raised will go to local organizations aiding those in need.
