HILTON HEAD ISLAND, SC (Monday, August 1, 2022) — At the heart of the Heritage Classic Foundation is a history of philanthropic giving that goes far beyond golf. The Heritage Classic Foundation announced today that its total impact since 1987 is $49.1 million to educational and charitable initiatives that lift lives in South Carolina.
In its 35 years, the Heritage Classic Foundation has donated $7.1 million for education, $5 million in scholarships, $16.3 million toward health and welfare, $6.6 million to support arts and culture, $11.5 million for children’s programs and $2.6 million toward environmental causes. All of these charities work in and support the South Carolina community.
So far this year, the Heritage Classic Foundation has donated $1.6 million to South Carolina charities, made possible by the proceeds of the RBC Heritage Presented by Boeing, direct contributions, the Tartan Club, and the foundation’s giving programs, Birdies for Charity and Champions Fore Charity.
“The purpose of the Heritage Classic Foundation is to inspire the people in our region and to elevate the long-term economic, social and cultural life in South Carolina,” Heritage Classic Foundation President Steve Wilmot said. “We couldn’t make these types of contributions without each of you.”
Along with the donation announcement, the Heritage Classic Foundation is pleased to announce that it also has a refreshed brand.
“We wanted to make sure we continue to be relevant and resonate with the South Carolina community. Championing Charities and Lifting Lives is what we strive to do each and every day,” Heritage Classic Foundation Chairman Simon Fraser said. “You will see that appear in our ongoing messaging to demonstrate our desire to always elevate those in our community.”
