Crescent Home’s GIVE Program Announces Third Quarter Donations



Press Release

At the close of Q3, Crescent Homes is proud to donate $15,250 to five new local charities through GIVE, their philanthropic program. This sizable donation brings the total to $127,500 that the private homebuilder has given to thirty Charleston nonprofits since launching GIVE in the spring of 2017. 

Each quarter, Crescent Homes selects five new local charities to give 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 charity, we create a connection between the two that we hope carries on long after the home sale”.

-Ted Terry, Owner & CEO
