Governor Nikki Haley and the Central Carolina Community Foundation have announced plans to increase fundraising efforts for hurricane relief through the One SC Fund.

The One SC Fund was established in November of 2015 to assist South Carolinians in the event of natural disasters, its first project debuting when the fund provided relief and recovery assistance to state residents after last year's flood.

To date, the fund has distributed $2 million in grants to nonprofit organizations in support of flood recovery projects statewide and has helped over 1,500 families return to their homes.

Governor Haley released the following statement regarding the fundraising announcement:

"South Carolinians from all walks of life have been so generous through the challenges of the last few years.  We are now faced with a new challenge, and in the spirit of our state, of neighbors helping neighbors, we have expanded the mission of the OneSC Fund to help deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew.  Thank you, to anyone and everyone, in advance, for your gracious support - trust that every dollar we raise will go directly to helping a fellow South Carolinian in need."

- Governor Nikki Haley
