Reverend Pinckney Scholarship Fund
The Reverend Clementa C. Pinckney Scholarship Fund was started by anonymous donors who committed in excess of $3 million to the Fund. They acted in response to the tragic murders at Mother Emanuel A.M.E. Church and Charleston’s remarkable response to the shooting.
Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina, a nonprofit grantmaking institution serving coastal South Carolina, has been selected to manage the Fund and its companion program, the Reverend Pinckney Scholars Program. This scholarship program will promote access to higher education for African American students by awarding scholarships and providing supportive resources.

The formation of the Fund was announced on July 2, 2015.
