Charleston, SC- Crescent Homes’ inaugural year of the GIVE philanthropy program came to a successful close after a strong fourth quarter. Since its April launch, the GIVE program has donated a total of $62,500 to 15 local Charleston nonprofits. The final checks of the year were hand delivered by Crescent Homes CEO and founder, Ted Terry, and the next 5 organizations to receive donations for Q1 were announced.
Committed to giving back to Charleston, the GIVE program was established to benefit those groups working to improve the local community. By drawing awareness to their missions, the program aims to create a direct relationship between new homebuyers and local nonprofits. For every home sold, Crescent Homes donates $250 to a local group. Five new organizations are selected each quarter in tri-county area. Homebuyers receive educational information on each group and are able to select which cause will receive a donation in their honor.
“It inspires me to see what an incredible impact the GIVE program has made on the Charleston area in just nine months. The program represents everything that Crescent Homes stands for: celebrating and building community within the lowcountry. I am so grateful that the company is able to make a difference in the place we call home.”
-Ted Terry, Founder/CEO
In the final quarter of 2017, Crescent Homes donated a total of $20,750 to the following Charleston organizations:
● $5,000 to the Birthdays for All
● $3,200 to the Boy Scouts of America

For over 20 years, Operation Home has been helping Charleston folks remain in their homes by improving the safety and accessibility. From major home repairs and adding a wheelchair ramp to installing air condition units and space heaters, the organization works with low income families in need to ensure their homes are livable and safe for years to come.
Darkness to Light
Darkness to Light is committed to the concept that prevention begins with education, and works tirelessly to empower responsible adults to assist in the fight against child sexual abuse. Through education and training, the group brings awareness to the issue so that others may prevent, recognize, and react responsibly to child sexual abuse.
The Charleston Miracle League
A baseball league dedicated entirely to the happiness of children and adults with special needs, the Charleston Miracle League has a specially designed, rubberized baseball field and recreation complex so that players of all abilities can participate in this life-changing sport.
One80 Place is committed to preventing and ending homelessness, one person at a time. Through rehousing, job training, healthcare and more, the group works with individuals and families to turn their lives around.
In addition to providing monetary donations to local causes, the program works to educate the Crescent Homes community on a wide variety of organizations, drawing awareness and establishing connections with homebuyers. Crescent Homes has recently expanded GIVE to the Nashville, TN division, with plans to launch in Greenville, SC in 2018.
