ABOUT THE CORA BETT THOMAS REALTY – SC COMMUNITY FUND
The Cora Bett Thomas Realty Community Fund has donated sizeable gifts to multiple local nonprofit groups. The award-winning company was the first local real estate firm to establish its own charitable foundation, leading the way in service and dedication to the greater Hilton Head Island/Bluffton community. Donations are made on behalf of the agents at Cora Bett Thomas Realty who are dedicated to supporting the charitable fund which benefits organizations and special projects in the Lowcountry.
The Cora Bett Thomas Realty – SC Community Fund was created from a percentage of gross commissions from sales at the firm’s South Carolina office and is managed by the Community Foundation of the Lowcountry, a local nonprofit organization dedicated to strengthening community by connecting people, resources and needs, and over 98 percent of the funds donated benefit local causes.
“This is such an outstanding and creative way for our South Carolina office to make a difference in the community,” said company founder Cora Bett Thomas. “I commend the generosity of our South Carolina agents and fully support this charitable initiative and its future.”
Community foundations are independent philanthropic organizations working in specific geographic areas which, over time, build permanent collections of endowed funds contributed from many donors. With nearly 700 community foundations nationwide holding roughly $35 billion in assets, they make up one of the fastest growing sectors of philanthropy in the U.S. today.
