GIVE Program Second Quarter Donations and Third Quarter Recipients Announced

Crescent Homes’ philanthropic program, GIVE, concluded another successful quarter with $23,000 given to local Charleston groups from April-June 2018. Since launching in 2017, the program continues to support the company’s mission to go beyond the standard by shedding light on these worthy organizations and gifting over $112,250 to nonprofits throughout the tri-county area.

Conceived by Crescent Homes’ founder and CEO Ted Terry, GIVE aims to give back to the community by donating $250 for every home sale to a local Charleston organization. Five new organizations are selected each quarter, and homebuyers are able to choose which group will receive a donation in their honor.

“The goal of GIVE is twofold: in addition to supporting our local Charleston community financially, we aim to spread awareness to a wide variety of nonprofits. By facilitating relationships between local organizations, our homebuyers, and the general public, GIVE encourages involvement and recognition. Our hope is that these relationships continue on long after each home sale.”

-Ted Terry, Owner & CEO
