Over $100,000 Given To Local Charities Since 2017


Crescent Homes’ philanthropic program, GIVE, continues to support the local community through quarterly donations to Charleston charities. In quarter 3, the company gifted $15,250 to five new local nonprofits. This sizable donation brings the total to $127,500 that the private homebuilder has given to 30 Charleston nonprofits since launching GIVE in spring 2017.



Each quarter, Crescent Homes elects five new Charleston groups to receive a donation of $250 for every home sold. Founder and CEO Ted Terry created the program as a means of supporting the local community while drawing attention to worthy charities. The company allows homebuyers to select which group will receive a donation in their name, bringing awareness to each cause.

“Beyond the monetary donations, it is the relationships established between homebuyers and local nonprofits that makes the GIVE program so successful. By opening the door between a Crescent Homes customer and a local group, we create a connection between the two that we hope carries on long after the home sale.”

-Ted Terry, Owner & CEO
