From individuals who have lost their jobs and benefits, to seniors on fixed incomes, making ends meet has become a challenge. The Good Neighbor Fund is a nonprofit organization run by SCE&G employees who are committed to providing financial assistance to needy individuals and families facing unexpected tragedies or emergencies.

Since its inception in 1982, the GNF has assisted more than 10,000 families with donations of more than $3.2 million. Through payroll deduction, our employees’ generous donations provide temporary aid to individuals and families in South Carolina who have exhausted all other sources of help. The Good Neighbor Fund is not used to pay utility bills but to cover other essentials such as food, medicine, doctor bills, rent or mortgage payments.

Each year the annual Christmas project, which includes giving food baskets and toys to needy families, brightens the holidays of hundreds of families.
