Philanthropic Organization of the Year form the Association of Fundraising Professionals, Lowcountry Chapter
Anita Zucker, Chair and CEO of the InterTech Group, a past individual award winner, stated, “Bishop Gadsden Episcopal Retirement Community has been a Charleston institution since its founding in 1850. With a sincere focus on supporting residents who face financial difficulties to ensure they continue to live within Bishop Gadsden, as well as their desire to support the greater Charleston community, Bishop Gadsden is our 2018 Organization Philanthropist of the Year.
Dedicated to nurturing their culture of giving, Bishop Gadsden residents, future residents, board members, friends and family, and even staff members, contribute to their efforts of reaching out with a generous spirit. Since 1995, the Bishop Gadsden Community has distributed more than $6.1 million to charitable causes — touching organizations close to their James Island home, as well as those farther away. The list of organizations they have supported over the years numbers in the hundreds, and it keeps growing, while always assuring residents of the BG Community who face financial difficulties during the most vulnerable times of their lives that they will continue to call Bishop Gadsden home and receive the care they need.”
The Charitable Giving and Communications Office, along with the resident Charitable Mission Committee and the Bishop Gadsden Board of Trustees, work to share and raise awareness of Bishop Gadsden’s Charitable Mission — ensuring support of our internal and external charitable needs.
