Buy Ivey, Build Community Charity Campaign’s 2nd Quarter Giving
Ivey Homes continues to make an impact in the local community with over $11,000 given back in the 2nd quarter! The Buy Ivey, Build Community campaign highlights three local area charities each quarter where a donation is made with each home closed. A special part of the campaign is that new Ivey homeowners get to direct where their home’s donation funds will go. This gives Ivey a chance to support more local missions while giving local homeowners a look at important needs in the Augusta River Region.
The Buy Ivey, Build Community began in 2021 and to date has raised almost $90,000 for local charities. The campaign’s second quarter charities were Folds of Honor, RISE Augusta, and CanHope.
Folds of Honor Received $4,500
Folds of Honor is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization, rated a four-star charity by Charity Navigator and platinum on GuideStar, that provides educational scholarships to the families of military men and women who have fallen or been disabled while on active duty in the United States armed forces. Our educational scholarships support private educational tuition and tutoring for children in grades K-12, as well as higher education tuition assistance for spouses and dependents. Founded in 2007 by Lieutenant Colonel Dan Rooney, a PGA Professional and F-16 fighter pilot in the Air Force Reserves who served three tours of duty in Iraq, Folds of Honor is proud to have awarded approximately 24,500 scholarships in all 50 states and some US territories, including over 4,500 in 2019 alone.
RISE Augusta Received $3,250
Poverty and its overall impact on children and communities is a major obstacle to the health of any community. Education’s promise cannot on its own lift all poor students from where they started. Education can narrow the achievement gap and it can be a positive beacon for success, but non-school factors like one’s living conditions, its impact on student health, cognitive development, familial make-up, and social-emotional growth are all critical to a child’s success. More than anything else, RISE Augusta believes that to truly lift people out of poverty and embrace the 21st century, education is a major key. We must create a culture of success and expectation that every student–no matter the personal circumstance–can and deserves the opportunity to be prepared, motivated, and equipped to reach his or her greatest potential.
CanHope Received $4,000
CanHope is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that started assisting low-income cancer patients in 2003 here in Aiken County. Since that inception, CanHope has grown to serve Aiken and the surrounding six counties, including Edgefield. We provide financial assistance to cancer patients who live in one of these counties and fall within 250% of the federal poverty level. We help with transportation expenses to cancer treatment facilities, cancer medications and medical equipment and supplies. Historically, we help around 75 patients per year for a total of over 350 times throughout the year. We also disseminate early detection and cancer prevention resources to as many residents as possible in these seven counties.
