To date, the One SC Fund, a fundraising effort established by Governor Nikki Haley to help South Carolinians who are recovering from October’s unprecedented flooding continue the rebuilding process, has awarded $1.68 million to nonprofit organizations working in our state.
“We have neighbors and families who are still in need as we continue to rebuild a stronger South Carolina, and we are grateful for the continued generosity and kindness of so many across the state and country,” said Gov. Nikki Haley.
There is still much work needed in order to rebuild our state, work that will require funding. One exciting way to give to the One SC Fund is through one of two 24-hour online giving days, Midlands Gives and Lowcountry Unite, being held on May 3rd. Each of these events will bring their regions together as one community, raising money and awareness for hundreds of local nonprofits. Donations to the fund through these giving days will support flood recovery in their respective areas.
Two generous donors are supporting the One SC Fund through Midlands Gives. The Cheerful Giver will donate $1 to the One SC Fund for every donation made to any of the 375+ nonprofits participating in Midlands Gives. And, the Lipscomb Family Foundation will match all donations, up to $10,000, made to the One SC Fund through Midlands Gives.
