CAYCE, S.C. (March 23, 2020) – Dominion Energy South Carolina today announced a
$125,000 contribution to the One SC Fund to support a collaborative statewide response to the COVID-19 pandemic. The contribution is part of the Dominion Energy Charitable
Foundation’s $1 million to support national organizations, such as the American Red Cross, as well as to address local needs.
“Dominion Energy is steadfastly committed to the safety and well-being of our employees,
customers and the communities we serve,” said Rodney Blevins, president of Dominion
Energy South Carolina. “We will continue delivering safe, reliable energy and supporting our neighbors in need during this critical time.”
Dominion Energy South Carolina has been a supporter of the One SC Fund during storms
dating back to the fund’s establishment during the 2015 Thousand-Year Flood. Housed at
Central Carolina Community Foundation, the fund was recently activated to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Through experience, we know that building coalitions is essential when responding to
community need,” said JoAnn Turnquist, president and CEO of Central Carolina Community Foundation. “This coalition, with generous support from companies such as Dominion Energy, will help maximize our resources and local knowledge, and use our collective strengths to respond effectively to the COVID-19 pandemic in our state.”
The three core partners in the One SC: COVID-19 Response Fund – the SC Grantmakers
Network, TogetherSC, and the United Way Association of SC – will work together to address gaps in local, regional and statewide response efforts and provide support for communities lacking resources or an organized philanthropic response. One hundred percent of donations to the OneSC Fund will go directly to help South Carolina’s COVID-19 response. Nonprofits interested in applying for a grant can get more information at
