Building More Than Houses

Helping Local Nonprofits with Every Sale

Crescent Homes GIVE Quarter 3 Dee Dee Norton

With the holidays around the corner, the season of giving is upon us. Since launching our philanthropy program GIVE in April of this year, Crescent Homes is proud to announce that we have donated a total of $41,750 to ten deserving Charleston organizations.

For every home sale, GIVE donates $250 to a local nonprofit, allowing our homebuyers to choose which organization to support in an effort to spread awareness of these amazing organizations. At the close of each quarter, Crescent Homes CEO Ted Terry hand delivers a check to each recipient.

“It brings me immense joy to see the GIVE program succeeding in our mission to give back to the local community and to meet the people within these organizations that are making Charleston a better place.”
