Using collective impact best practices, New Morning Foundation currently serves as the backbone organization working in partnership with nonprofits, healthcare organizations, state agencies and other foundations to support Choose Well. As such, we steward the philanthropic dollars entrusted to us by donors and other foundations and make grants to organizations across the state whose missions align with the South Carolina Initiative.

From 2003 through 2022, New Morning Foundation will have invested more than $100 million to achieve new milestones in reproductive health care for all South Carolinians. Gifted from our founding donors, foundations and major funders, these philanthropic dollars fill a very real void in our state’s ability to improve social outcomes for our residents.

Financial Transparency

We fully disclose information related to assets, investments and budgets, and make the results of annual, independent audits public.

What the experts say

We have invested more than $40 million in research and programs over the last 15 years with one mission: to reduce unintended pregnancy in South Carolina.”
