Grants to South Carolina nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and educational and research institutions for health projects throughout the state. Applicants must contact the Foundation prior to submitting a Letter of Intent. Funding is intended to support initiatives in the areas of access to care, health workforce development, quality improvement projects, healthy lifestyle and well-being, research, and special projects.

The South Carolina Foundation seeks to fund programs and initiatives that are closely aligned with the Five Areas of Focus. Funded Areas:
  1. Access to Care
    • Support safety net providers to provide primary physical and mental health care.
    • Implement evidence-based or innovative models to increase accessibility of health care services.
  2. Building a Stronger Workforce for Health
    • Support projects to increase the number of health care professionals.
    • Support health care career development through evidence-based or innovative approaches to advance skills.
  3. Improving the Quality and Value of Health and Health Care
    • Quality improvement projects that yield cost and resource efficiencies through innovative approaches and solutions
  4. Investing in the Health and Well-being of SC Children and Families
    • Support projects that foster environments and settings that encourage healthy eating and active lifestyles.
    • Support projects that focus on the integration of mental health and adverse childhood experiences.
    • Support projects that focus on population health improvement through intentional collaboration across multiple sectors to connect the non-health factors that influence health.
  5. Research/Special Projects
    • Support projects to inform, influence and support the Areas of Focus and/or Mission. These projects may fall outside of an established area of focus yet would generate value-added information relevant to the health needs of the economically vulnerable population in South Carolina.
