About Kids' Chance of South Carolina

Our Mission


Kids' Chance of South Carolina was created to provide scholarships and support for college and vocational education to dependents of South Carolina workers who have been seriously or fatally injured in a work-related accident.  The hardships to children and families created by the death or serious disability of a parent often include financial ones, making it difficult for deserving young people to pursue their educational dreams.


Kids' Chance of South Carolina, Inc. is a 501(C)3 organization that was founded in 1992 by members of the workers' compensation community. Since that time, more than $1.04 million scholarships have been awarded to deserving students in South Carolina.

Our Vision 

We envision a time when all children affected by a parent’s work-related injury or death can pursue their educational dreams without financial burden.

We believe that:

  • Children are South Carolina’s most value resource;
  • We have an obligation to give children the tools they need to succeed in life;
  • Access to higher education ensures that children have the necessary skills to be successful in the workplace;
  • Investing in our children’s future provides them the opportunity to make a difference in their own life and the lives of others.

Kids' Chance of America
