Discovering the Voices of our Community Letter from the Foundation’s Chairman and President:

“The voice of passion is better than the voice of reason. The passionless cannot change history.” Czeslaw Milosz

Our theme for the 2004 Annual Report, Voices of Philanthropy, reflects the multitude of Spartanburg County citizens, nonprofit organizations, and initiatives who express their philanthropic deeds through The Spartanburg County Foundation. The following pages illustrate our many voices, which include our donors, grant recipients, trustees, staff, and community, as well as voices of the past and the future. We hope that you will gain a strong sense of how this community foundation interacts with our many patrons who seek to improve the common good of Spartanburg County. Our 2004 Year-In-Review was highlighted with the Board of Trustees approving a 2010 Strategic Plan, which establishes five major goals to be achieved in incremental phases from 2005 through 2010. In this plan, we will strive to further establish The Spartanburg County Foundation as the preferred organization for community philanthropy; increase our assets to a total of 110 million dollars by 2010; expand and focus our resources on donor education in connecting donors with other funders to identified community needs; uphold the integrity, history, and tradition of the Foundation while growing an effective staff; and, invest our social, intellectual, and financial capital as a philanthropic leader in addressing the health and well-being of our community. In March 2004, our Foundation launched the Strengthening Voices Initiative as a mechanism to empower the Spartanburg Community to assume individual and collective responsibility for positive social change. This initiative focuses on increasing the community’s capacity to address issues that deeply impact families in the community. The Strengthening Voices Initiative uses a four-pronged approach to address capacity building at the Foundation level, the community level, the organizational level, and the individual level. This approach is very successful in pulling together resources and leveraging them across multiple strategies to plant the positive seeds of lasting community change. Our first Grassroots Leadership Class in this Initiative successfully graduated at the end of 2004, and we are happy to report that this process re-energized this group in sustaining themselves individually and as an organization. At the conclusion of 2004, The Spartanburg County Foundation also completed a milestone project in partnership with the United Way of the Piedmont. Community Indicators VI: Strategic Spartanburg identified and examined the many key human services and social issues affecting Spartanburg County. These issues directly impact the growth, health, and quality of life for all Spartanburg citizens. We formally announced the Sixth Edition Indicator report in early 2005, and we are currently implementing a Community Improvement Plan, which we hope will serve to move our benchmarks forward in community progress. During this past year, we opened 22 new fund relationships, bringing our total now under management to 623. We had another positive year in our investment performance as our funds experienced a 14.6% return, further enabling them to expand their charitable pursuits if they so choose. We have now experienced a 40% gain in asset growth over the last two years, and the total assets of the Foundation at the end of 2004 were $70,270,000. The 2004 year saw changes to the Board of Trustees as well. Mr. Edward P. (Pat) Perrin retired from his Trusteeship for a second time in January 2004. Pat Perrin retired from his seven-year Trusteeship in 1988, but was called back into service for the last two and one-half years to fulfill an unexpired term of one of our former trustees. Pat’s resources, knowledge, and experience proved to be invaluable to this Board during this time and his passion, love, and commitment to this Foundation was indeed appreciated by our board and staff. In December, the board elected our new trustee, the Reverend Dr. Clay H. Turner, and he began his seven-year trusteeship in January 2005. Clay’s community involvement and leadership skills bring great resources to the Board of Trustees, and we look forward to his service to this board. It is a high privilege to be serving this organization with such a storied history of significant accomplishments and its wonderful potential for continued success and growth. As we enter our seventh decade, we will continue to pursue our work in a way that embraces our history and enhances our reputation as an organization of the highest integrity. We will strive to serve Spartanburg County through appropriate grant making, stressing inclusiveness and compassion, and we will also strive to serve our donors in an efficient and professional manner but with a personal touch centered on helpfulness and accessibility. We look forward to our continued growth, improving our capacity to serve this community; meeting the challenges that growth will inevitably bring while remaining true to the ideals of those who came before us. We would like to personally thank you, our Donors, who use this Foundation as your steward to benefit and enrich the countless interests that you hold dear, reflecting your Voices of Philanthropy, which make for a better Spartanburg County community in which to live.

An example of a Supporting Organization Judy Bradshaw Children’s Foundation

W

“For example, if I am treating a little girl with walking difficulties, I might select a doll buggy for her to push. The children receive toys with a rehabilitative purpose behind them.”

hen Judy and Charles Bradshaw decided to retire to Spartanburg in 1998, Charles wanted to do something very special for his wife to celebrate her 60th birthday. He knew of her passion and love for helping children, particularly those in need of medical assistance who had no medical insurance or were under-insured. With the help and advice of their longtime friend and attorney Louis P. Howell, they decided to talk with John Dargan at The Spartanburg County Foundation. After several meetings and assistance from their trust and estate planner R. Ray Dennis, they decided to establish a supporting organization with the Foundation which became known as the Judy Bradshaw Children’s Foundation. Charles funded the foundation with a gift of stock. Judy and her daughter Dargan Bradshaw serve as its principle directors. “I wanted to give Judy a meaningful present, one that would continue to give to her heart,” said Charles. “She is passionate about helping children, and I knew that she would enjoy sharing her love and resources with them.” “Charlie has given me so much—three lovely children, bringing his father to live in Spartanburg during the final years of his life, and this wonderful opportunity to help children who might not otherwise get the help they need,” said Judy. “We aim to give glory to God through the lives of these children and their families.” In 2004, the Spartanburg Regional Pediatric Rehabilitation celebrated its 7th annual Christmas Party sponsored by the Judy Bradshaw Foundation. “It was another truly amazing Christmas,” said Tracie Rodak, PT, Pediatric Rehabilitation Manager. “We can not thank Judy, Charles, and Dargan Bradshaw enough!” The Judy Bradshaw Children’s Foundation gave a $20,000 budget to the Pediatric Rehab to provide the 2004 Christmas party for its patients. Each therapist in the rehabilitation center selected presents that specifically address the child’s condition. “For example, if I am treating a little girl with walking difficulties, I might select a doll buggy for her to push,” said Rodak. “The children receive toys with a rehabilitative purpose behind them.” At the party several hundred children have their photos taken with Santa, play games, and enjoy face painting, magic tricks, and balloon artists. Aside from the Christmas party, the Bradshaws wanted to provide funding that would help children with therapeutic necessities that their families could not afford. One wheelchair dependent patient who had outgrown her wheelchair received funding to cover the insurance co-pay. Another patient suffering from severe reflux, failure to thrive, underweight, and respiratory problems received funding to purchase a reflux wedge, an item not covered by the family’s health insurance. Since receiving the reflux wedge, the patient’s health has improved; she is now able to keep food down and is gaining weight. All graduates from local colleges (Judy and Dargan from Converse; Charles from Wofford), the Bradshaws are active participants in Spartanburg community affairs. Judy served on the SRHS Foundation Heart Board, the Converse College Board of Trustees, and the Board of Directors of Thornwell Home for Children, and is an Elder of Westminster Presbyterian Church. Charles, Cofounder and former Chairman of the Board of Spartan Food Systems, served on the SRHS Foundation Board, and currently serves on the Sonoco Board of Directors, and the Linville, N.C., Corporation Board of Directors.

An example of a Donor Advised Fund John & Jean Williams Donor Advised Fund

I

n 1997, John and Jean Williams were considering building a new home on 47 acres of land that they owned. When contemplating their options, both had the same idea, but neither was sure the other would agree. “I was thinking that instead of building, we should remodel the family home that John had grown up in,” said Jean. “I asked John how he felt about the idea, and wonderfully enough, he had been thinking the same thing.” So they renovated John’s family home and moved into it. They then donated their 47 acres of land to The Spartanburg County Foundation and opened a Donor Advised Fund to receive the profits

“The Donor Advised Fund provided a simple way for us to continue to give to the organizations that matter most to us.”

from the sale of that land. Through the fund, John and Jean continue to pursue their philanthropic interests. “We were familiar with the Foundation because of the Citizen Scholar program, through which we had mentored a student,” said Jean. “Also, we knew Jim Barrett, the president of the Foundation at that time, through church.” Through dialogue with Barrett, they learned about the options the Foundation could provide to assist them in furthering their philanthropic endeavors. “The Donor Advised Fund provided a simple way for us to continue to give to the organizations that matter most to us,” said John. “The Foundation manages our fund and distributions. We set the parameters and the Foundation maintains everything else. We love the flexibility.” They designed the fund so that it will continue their philanthropic legacy through their son, John Williams, Jr. “We wanted to devise a way to carry on our family’s philanthropy,” said Jean. “By setting up the John and Jean Williams Donor Advised Fund, we’re ensuring just that. In the future, John Jr. will continue giving from the fund. He understands the importance of giving back to the community.” John retired from the railway industry, and Jean is a retired math instructor. Married for forty years, they remain active in the Spartanburg Community. Jean serves as President of the Altar Guild at Central United Methodist Church, is a member of Delta Kappa Gamma, ETA Chapter, and the Athenaeum Book Club. John is Chairman of the Board of Trustees at Central United Methodist Church, serves on the Advisory Council with the Salvation Army, is a member of the Board of Directors of the Men’s Garden Club, and he serves on the Board of Directors of Homeless Children International. John and Jean’s philanthropic interests include Central United Methodist Church and their alma maters, Wofford College and Emory & Henry College in Virginia (where Jean completed her undergraduate studies). “We couldn’t be more pleased with The Spartanburg County Foundation,” said John. “John Dargan and the team at the Foundation are so helpful. We appreciate the investment performance of our fund and the Board of Trustees’ handling of the fund. It’s a positive relationship, one that continues to grow.”

An example of an Agency Endowment HOPE VI Partnership Fund “We are going to renovate the CC Woodson Center and turn it into a community center where residents will receive job skills training, educational development, and other types of programs that will enhance their self sufficiency.”

T

he Spartanburg Housing Authority (SHA) was pleased when it received a $20 million HOPE VI grant from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to redevelop the Phyllis Goins Development into the new community of Collins Park, but needed a way to ensure its continued maintenance. So, the HOPE VI Partnership Fund was established at The Spartanburg County Foundation to provide assistance in the support and maintenance of the development and its residents. “This endowment will provide social services to the residents,” said SHA Executive Director Roy Johnson. “We are going to renovate the CC Woodson Center and turn it into a community center where residents will receive job skills training, educational development, and other types of programs that will enhance their self sufficiency. We will offer a full range of programs either provided by the Spartanburg Housing Authority or by participating agencies. Hopefully, this will become a crossroads.” In order to begin redevelopment, all residents of the 184 severely distressed public housing units at Phyllis Goins were relocated. Demolition crews will have the grounds ready for construction to begin in early 2006. The new developments will consist of homes (for rental or homeownership), businesses, health facilities, and more open spaces. (Also to be developed under the grant are 83 new for-sale and rental homes for low- and moderate-income residents in the adjacent neighborhoods of Shaw/Wilmont, Victoria Gardens, and Country Garden Estates.) “The old development was constructed in 1951 and had a high concentration of families living in small spaces,” said Johnson. “The new developments will look more like traditional neighborhoods with more green space and sidewalks. We’re bringing the tenants into the redevelopment process. They have a say in the recreation of this neighborhood. The goal is to remove the housing development ‘perimeter’ and become a part of the community.” The Spartanburg Housing Authority owns 1400 public housing units where the amount of rent paid is based on income. Occupants pay 30 percent of their income toward rent and utilities with a minimum rent requirement of $50 per month. The SHA also provides 1500 Section 8 vouchers, rent paid to a private landlord on behalf of the tenants. The demand for public housing is high, and the waiting list numbers over 500 applications. “We are so pleased with the funding we’ve received,” said Johnson. “The community has helped tremendously with generous contributions to the HOPE VI Partnership Fund housed at The Spartanburg County Foundation. The growth of this fund makes a powerful statement to HUD; it shows the commitment of Spartanburg and its citizens.”

An example of a Field of Interest Fund Reverend Dr. Clay H. Turner Endowment Fund for the St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic

T

“Local emergency rooms were overburdened because they were the primary care facilities for those without family physicians. It was a vicious cycle.”

he St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic was established in 1992 through the initiative of The Church of the Advent, Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church, and First Baptist Church to provide free medical care and medication to low income citizens who do not have access to health insurance or affordable healthcare. Since then, the number of donors and institutions supporting the clinic has grown to over 1100 individuals, 182 businesses and organizations, 28 foundations and 35 churches of almost every denomination. During the celebration of its sesquicentennial in 1998, The Church of the Advent established the Reverend Dr. Clay H. Turner Endowment Fund in recognition of Dr. Turner’s leadership in establishing the St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic. Earnings from the fund are disbursed to the clinic for medication and medical instruments, supplies, and equipment. Based on a model clinic that Turner had worked with in Virginia, the mission of St. Luke’s is to provide free medical care, medication, and pastoral counseling to eligible residents of Spartanburg County. “I had seen what a congregation could do, and I asked myself what my leadership could be through this ministry in Spartanburg,” said Turner. “I began to present the idea of a free clinic to doctors in the parish. A study by Duke University had shown that 19% of Spartanburg County residents were without health insurance; this includes working folks. Local emergency rooms were overburdened because they were the primary care facilities for those without family physicians. It was a vicious cycle.” Turner approached parishioners of The Church of the Advent and congregations of other churches including Mt. Moriah Baptist Church, First Baptist, and First Presbyterian. Dozens of people organized and agreed that a free clinic would benefit the citizens of Spartanburg County. The Reverend Benjamin Snoddy donated the use of a vacant medical office owned by Mt. Moriah, which became the initial location of St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic in 1992. Local civic organizations, foundations, pharmaceutical companies, and health care providers banded together to provide funding and supplies for the clinic. Demands eventually outgrew the size of the facility, and the operation moved into its current location, the Georgia Cleveland Home, which was donated by the Cleveland Family. It was during the time of transition that The Church of the Advent established the endowment fund with The Spartanburg County Foundation. The parish established the fund to ensure that monies would be available to the clinic in perpetuity. “The thing that strikes me the most is the way the community has embraced the clinic,” said Georgia Vaughn, Director of St. Luke’s. “We don’t receive any government funding. This is all due to the citizens of Spartanburg. We have over 250 general volunteers, 55 doctors, nearly 100 specialists, 20 nurses, and 12 pharmacists, all who see our patients for free. This is not to mention the countless others behind the scenes—Mary Black and Spartanburg Regional—who see our patients on referral without charge.” Without generous support from churches, businesses, and people from across the county, the clinic could not sustain its mission. According to Vaughn, the clinic’s greatest challenge is keeping up with the cost of pharmaceuticals: “We struggle with providing prescriptions to an increasingly older population with critical needs for medications. The Reverend Dr. Clay H. Turner Endowment Fund for the St. Luke’s Free Medical Clinic helps address those needs, and for that, we are truly grateful.”

Grace B. Daniels

“This program makes a difference in the lives of bright young people who would ordinarily not have the support to achieve a strong primary education and eventually

n August of 2000, John Dargan met with Mary A. Daniels’ trust and estate planner Alan Tewkesbury. Ms. Daniels wanted to provide scholarships for students in Spartanburg County and expressed interest in The Spartanburg County Foundation’s youth mentoring program, Citizen Scholar. Through the program, students identified as being at risk of not graduating from high school and continuing to college are chosen from within all seven Spartanburg County school districts. The students are selected at the fifth grade level, and for seven years they are mentored and tutored to ensure their further academic success. If they successfully graduate from the Citizen Scholar program, they are given $10,500 (last-end) to be applied toward college tuition. Mary saw the merit of this program and instructed Mr. Tewkesbury to direct the proceeds from her trust to the support of this program upon her death in memory of her and her sister Grace B. Daniels. Mary passed away August 5, 2003, in Spartanburg. Shortly thereafter, the Mary A. Daniels & Grace B. Daniels Citizen Scholar Fund was established at the Foundation. Two of six children born to Dr. Samuel Snoddy Daniels and Annie Lola Anthony Daniels, the sisters were natives of Spartanburg. Mary was a 1924 graduate of Converse College and a 1937 graduate of USC, where she achieved her Master of Arts Degree. Grace graduated from Converse College in 1921 and received a Master of Arts Degree from USC in 1933. Both sisters taught school until they retired. Neither married. “This is a major boost to our initiative,” said Jocelle Allen, Program Director. “This program makes a difference in the lives of bright young people who would ordinarily not have the support to achieve a strong primary education and eventually attend college.” Next spring, the Mary A. Daniels & Grace B. Daniels class of the Citizen Scholar program will be selected. The sisters’ nieces Brenda Rickborn and Linda Carter will be involved in the class’s mentoring projects. “Mary was quite a character, and I have learned so much more about her, Grace, and the rest of the family in Spartanburg over the last ten years,” said Ms. Rickborn. “I’m very excited about the ‘Daniels’ class being selected and can’t wait to share with them some of the interesting history our aunts left with us.”

An example of a Scholarship Fund The Dorman High School Weldon Wyatt Endowment Fund

W

hen the time came to relocate Dorman High School, Spartanburg County School District Six was looking to do more than simply construct a larger building. “Not only did we need to expand to a larger and more modern facility, we were looking for a way to create more scholarship opportunities for the students while continuing to support the growth of Spartanburg,” said Dr. David Eubanks, former superintendent of District Six.

“This is about providing an equal opportunity for every single student, not just those at the top of the class, but all graduates interested in continuing their education and who need some type of financial assistance.”

Dorman High School was placed on the auction block, and the negotiations came down to two prospective buyers. The first bidder offered to top the $15.5 million price tag with a $50,000 per year scholarship for a twenty-year period. Aiken-based developer Weldon Wyatt approached with an even better offer, one that the sellers couldn’t refuse. Dr. Eubanks recalls Mr. Wyatt’s offer: “I’ll give you $15.5 million for the property plus $1 million right now for the development of a scholarship fund.” Dr. Eubanks recognized that “the prudent thing to do was to accept his offer, and we are all so glad that we did. He’s a great person to deal with, very humble. He has done everything that he promised.” After finalizing the sale, and while the school transitioned to its new location, District Six approached The Spartanburg County Foundation and established the Dorman High School Weldon Wyatt Endowment Fund. “We are watching the fund grow,” said Darryl Owings, current superintendent of School District Six. “The Endowment will not be spent below $1.25 million, but with the positive return we’ve had on investments through the Foundation, we will be able to begin awarding scholarships in the near future.” All Dorman High School graduates who attend an institute of higher learning will receive a scholarship, regardless of their grades. “This is about providing an equal opportunity for every single student,” said Weldon Wyatt, “not just those at the top of the class, but all graduates interested in continuing their education and who need some type of financial assistance.” Born in Pacolet, Wyatt is now retired and owns golf courses where he hosts annual tournaments to raise funds for scholarships awarded through various foundations. The high school’s previous location now houses the Dorman Shopping Center, host to over a dozen shops and restaurants. “It was a tremendous gesture by Mr. Wyatt,” said Owings. “The community continues to grow with new development, and all Dorman graduates will have scholarship opportunities. His generosity will impact present students as well as future generations.”

Supporting Organization Funds allow public charities 501(c)(3), that have affiliated with The Spartanburg County Foundation, to make their charitable grants and distributions. Unrestricted Funds are given to The Spartanburg County Foundation by people who entrust The Foundation’s volunteer leaders and professional staff to make their philanthropic decision-making for them. These funds are used to address the community’s most pressing needs over time. (If you choose to establish a different type of fund, you may designate a portion of it as unrestricted.)

2004 Spartanburg County Foundation Grant Piedmont Community Actions, Inc., Head Start

P

iedmont Community Actions, Inc., has been providing assistance to low-income families in Spartanburg and Cherokee Counties since 1966. The agency supplies emergency food and medicine, emergency fuel and cooling assistance, and rental assistance to families in crises. They offer job skills programs as well as beginner and advanced computer training courses. The agency also helps weatherize area homes, and it protects the county’s future—555 three- and four-year-old children who participate in Piedmont Community Action’s Head Start Program. Recently, the U.S. Department of Transportation passed a bus mandate that requires all school

“The harnesses have proven to provide additional safety precautions for our precious cargo.”

buses transporting children under 40 pounds to provide adjustable shoulder harnesses. The mandate serves to further protect but does not provide funding to implement the installation of the harness belts. “We simply didn’t have all of the funds to cover the expense of installing 286 harnesses,” said John Shennan, Executive Director, Piedmont Community Actions, Inc. “We have been blessed to have a long term relationship with The Spartanburg County Foundation who helped us greatly by providing us with a $7,150.00 matching grant.” (Monies provided to match funds raised.) With the funding in place, Head Start employees received training on the proper use of the harnesses before they were installed. The employees learned emergency escape methods, how to adjust harness size for smaller children, and the importance of seat assignments for health issues. “The harnesses are so much better than using just lap belts,” said Shennan. “After a long day at school, children are tired and often doze off during the commute. The harnesses keep them from sliding out of their seats. The harnesses have proven to provide additional safety precautions for our precious cargo.” Once the harnesses were installed, seats were assigned and harnesses were adjusted in accordance with the height and weight of each child carried on one of the program’s 14 buses serving Spartanburg County. “The children have adapted well,” said Robert “Bob” Lytes, Head Start Director. “They snap them on with ease and have no complaints. At first, the parents and teachers thought it might make the bus commute time longer, but really there’s not any difference. It’s a good situation all the way around.” In addition to its educational aspects, the Head Start program provides health and dental services, nutritional services, linkages between Head Start and the public schools the children will attend, parental activities, and Social Services for the children’s families.

2004 Spartanburg County Foundation Grant SAFE Homes–Rape Crisis Coalition

S

AFE (Shelter Available for Emergencies) Homes–Rape Crisis Coalition began in 1982 as a grassroots organization of community members who joined together in opening their homes to victims of domestic violence and rape. Eventually the coalition grew, and it rented a 2,300 square foot space downtown in order to expand its services. Over the years, demand for services has outgrown the facility, so SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition decided to relocate again. They purchased the previous site of Southern Distributors on Union Street. The Spartanburg County Foundation provided support through a $17,000 grant to help renovate the new facility.

“We wanted one location where victims will be helped in all aspects of their journey.”

“The downtown location became too cramped for operations,” said Lynn Hawkins, Executive Director, SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition. “The new building will provide adequate space for staff, clients, volunteers, and other service providers to work confidentially and effectively.” The coalition is hoping that its new 23,700 square foot location will become a “one-stop shop” for responding to domestic violence and sexual assault victims by bringing together under one roof professionals who provide an array of necessary services. “We wanted one location where victims will be helped in all aspects of their journey,” said Hawkins. “Our goal is to avoid making them feel like a number being pushed through the system. Currently, they have to go to numerous locations to get help. The more services they receive under one roof, the better.” Annually, the center will assist approximately 5,000 victims through 24-hour crisis lines, legal advocacy services, therapy services, and educational and training programs; provide emergency shelter, case management, and assistance in locating employment and housing for approximately 425 adults and children; provide individual and group therapy for approximately 900 adult and child victims; assist approximately 400 victims in filing for orders of protection; and provide information and support in approximately 900 family and criminal court hearings. At the new center, the coalition will continue to collaborate with the solicitor’s office, magistrate and family courts, and law enforcement. SAFE Homes-Rape Crisis Coalition also works closely with the Spartanburg Children’s Advocacy Center, Child Abuse Response Team, Carolina Counseling, Spartanburg Alcohol and Drug Abuse Commission, SC Centers for Equal Justice, the Spartanburg Area Mental Health Center, area hospitals, Spartanburg County Department of Social Services, Spartanburg Public Safety’s Criminal Domestic Violence Unit, and the sheriff ’s office. The coalition’s thrift store/donation center will relocate from its current location on John B. White Boulevard to the Union Street facility, further developing the “one-stop shop” atmosphere. All victims are provided with vouchers that enable them to shop the store for free. Hawkins said that it is not uncommon to shelter women whose abusive husbands have burned down their homes after they have left. The thrift store provides a myriad of clothing and household items for women and their children who are starting over. “We have some women who come to us with absolutely nothing,” said Hawkins. “They are starting over and need everything, right down to salt and pepper shakers. In whatever capacity we can, we are here to help and our new location will greatly expand our abilities.” 2004 Annual Report • 41

2004 Spartanburg County Foundation Grant The Salvation Army – Spartanburg Corps Salvation Army Century of Service Park

T

he face and reputation of Una are changing for the better. The Salvation Army-Spartanburg Corps is leading the charge with the development of the Salvation Army Century of Service Park. The title celebrates the Salvation Army’s 100 years of service to Spartanburg County, 19042004. Last fall, The Spartanburg County Foundation joined the effort by granting $15,000 toward the development of storm drains, overlook areas, and bridges on the fitness trail. When William Barnet & Son, LLC, approached the Salvation Army and asked if the community

“We were given an incredible opportunity to generate change in the community. This park will enhance the Una/ Saxon/Arcadia areas in more ways than one.”

would be interested in saving a green space that was headed toward being turned into a junk yard, the more than 2,000 citizens of Una and its surrounding areas responded with a resounding “Yes!” Barnet donated approximately 8½ acres to the Salvation Army. “We were given an incredible opportunity to generate change in the community,” said Salvation Army Captain Thomas McWilliams. “This park will enhance the Una/Saxon/Arcadia areas in more ways than one.” The park will curb the inactivity in the area, provide a resource for healthier living, increase surrounding property values and decrease crime. Working with the Salvation Army, the Palmetto Conservation Foundation and Partners for Active Living held community meetings and completed a survey that indicated that 58% of the community will visit the park with friends, 68% will take their children or grandchildren, 32% will visit with a spouse, and 32% will visit alone. Construction on the project is slated for completion in June. The finished park will contain community picnic areas, interactive play areas, nature observation points, rest stops, a walking/jogging trail, and landscaped green space. “Every day I go by the area to see its accomplishments. It’s coming along quickly,” said Una resident Jean Fowler. “I envision this as a haven for birds and birdwatchers, walking clubs, community celebrations, school outings, family picnics, looking at flowers, or just plain relaxing.” The park represents a collaborative effort among community residents and area organizations. Other contributors include the Mary Black Foundation, Milliken & Company, JM Smith Foundation, Barnet Foundation Trust, First National Bank of Spartanburg, Spartanburg Coca~Cola Bottling, and the Black & Phillips Foundation. The Salvation Army is also raising funds to establish an endowment fund to provide park maintenance in perpetuity. Spartanburg County is helping the area construct new sidewalks near the park in order to provide easier access. “Truly this is a joint community effort,” said Monica Cothran, Salvation Army Development & Community Relations Director, “the benefits of which will reach far beyond the park’s borders.”

Over the past several years, the percussion section found itself in need of new instruments to enhance performance quality. “We had only two tympani drums, and they were so outdated that replacement parts were no longer made,” said former director Mark Fisher. “It was really difficult to continue tuning and playing on them.” The band wrote a grant proposal to The Spartanburg County Foundation seeking funds for four new professional tympani drums and other percussion instruments. The Trustees approved the request and awarded an $8,000 grant. With other funds raised, the Spartanburg Community Band purchased additional percussion instruments including a xylophone, chimes, and a bass drum. “Most music is composed for three or four drums, not two,” said Joe Mullinax, Percussion Leader. “We were improvising as much as possible, but that only works to a point. On some pieces, we simply had to cut parts of the music. I can’t tell you how much better our performances sound with all four drums; it makes a world of difference.” Band member Pat Dockendorf, who took up playing the tympani drums at age 70, says the difference is palpable to the audience: “The sound is so much richer. The range we are now able to perform is incredible. The percussion players are invigorated and the audience has noticed the difference.” The band practices weekly at the Spartanburg Day School where they house the percussion instruments. The students at the Day School also use the tympanis during practice and concerts. “It’s great for the kids,” said Mullinax. “Before, they were not well equipped for a strong learning experience. They would prepare for state contests by setting up two barstools next to the old drums.” The Spartanburg Community Band performed with its new percussion instruments at its annual Christmas Concert last December. Their two ensembles—concert and jazz—perform throughout the year in Spartanburg County. The band hosts Ice Cream Sundays in May and June at USC Upstate, the 4th of July celebration at Cowpens National Battlefield, and spring and fall concerts. All performances are free and open to the public.

2004 Spartanburg County Foundation Grant Spartanburg Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council, Inc. “It is about building trust, decision making, goal setting, and self-esteem—things applicable to a career and community service. We empower them to know that they are in the driver’s seat of their lives.”

hrough its community involvement, the Spartanburg Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council is doing its part to lower the pregnancy rate of adolescents. To implement its plan, the council is participating in and utilizing the training and curriculum of the Teen Outreach Program, a national program based on the principles of positive youth development and the helper theory (placing the least empowered individuals i.e., young people and, more specifically, disadvantaged young people, in helper roles). “We are preparing for our second year of the program,” said Jessalyn Wynn Story, Executive Director, Spartanburg Teen Pregnancy Prevention Council. “Thanks to a grant of $15,000 from The Spartanburg County Foundation, we are expanding and looking for partners who are willing to undergo training and become facilitators in next year’s program.” Last year’s program was implemented at the South Carolina School for the Deaf and the Blind. Facilitators will follow a curriculum that serves the program’s goals to promote young people’s healthy behavior, increase successful achievement in school, and decrease negative outcomes such as early pregnancy; help young people acquire life skills and develop the competencies and capacities necessary to grow into healthy, self-sustaining adults; and give young people a sense of purpose through authentic opportunities to contribute in meaningful ways to their communities. “It is more than teaching abstinence and sex education,” said Story. “It is about building trust, decision making, goal setting, and self-esteem—things applicable to a career and community service. We empower them to know that they are in the driver’s seat of their lives.” Program participants meet at least once a week during the school year and are involved in curriculum-based discussions and activities focusing on issues related to the service experience such as social skills, assertiveness, self-confidence and self-discipline, and on general developmental issues of adolescence, such as understanding one’s self, self-discipline, values, family and peer relationships, and human growth and development. “Students tell me that they feel that they are in a safe environment and are open to discussing tough issues that today’s teens face, and that they’ve learned how to be a part of a team and how to be responsible to that team,” Story said. “I have seen the impact that this program has had on the students, and I am grateful to The Spartanburg County Foundation for providing us with the opportunity to continue.”

Grassroots Leadership and Capacity Building Grants Building the Capacity of our Community

T “We are better equipped with the ability to provide area nonprofits with the resources and funding necessary to accomplish change.”

he Spartanburg County Foundation’s programs of work illustrate the power of collaboration. Through partnerships with the S.C. Center for Grassroots & Nonprofit Leadership (Center) at Clemson University, the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation, the William Randolph Hearst Foundation, the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth, and the Mary Black Foundation, The Spartanburg County Foundation leveraged over $375,000.00 and expanded its ability to provide assistance to local nonprofit organizations. Through a partnership with the Center for Grassroots & Nonprofit Leadership at Clemson University, SCF made available over $100,000.00 in funding to Spartanburg nonprofits. The Spartanburg County Foundation earmarked $50,000 to be matched on a dollar for dollar basis with funds from the SC Rural Communities Compassion Project administered by the Center. Proposals for up to $20,000 were sought from qualified faith- and community-based organizations in Spartanburg County to build upon their capacity to implement programs related to poverty, hunger, homelessness, at-risk children, families transitioning from welfare to work, and people in need of intense rehabilitation such as addicts and prisoners. Another collaborative effort between The Spartanburg County Foundation, the Mary Reynolds Babcock Foundation (providing grassroots capacity building), the Coalition of Community Foundations for Youth (providing youth capacity building), and the William Randolph Hearst Foundation (providing $100,000.00 capacity building resources), offered further opportunities to area nonprofits through The Spartanburg County Foundation’s Strengthening Voices program. Strengthening Voices is an initiative of the Foundation that was created to positively impact families in Spartanburg County by providing funding to institutions to help improve their organizational capacity by strengthening the individuals comprising each group. Organizations that were awarded grants are: the Adult Learning Center, the Citizen Scholar Program, Spartanburg Terrace Tenants Association, the Urban League of the Upstate, and the Woodruff Community Center. As part of the grant, organizations were asked to participate in the Grassroots Leadership Development Institute. Individuals representing each organization attended Saturday workshops once a month, over a six month period, to receive training in areas such as: community building, community organizing, race and power, resource development, strategic thinking, and public speaking. “The Grassroots Leadership Development Institute helped our organization by teaching us the skills and tools we needed to continue to move forward,” said Benjamin Wright, Public Affairs Manager, Spartanburg Terrace Tenants Association. Another collaborative partnership with the Mary Black Foundation provided scholarships to area nonprofits to attend South Carolina Association of Nonprofit Organizations’ 2004 annual conference, Pathways to the Future. Leaders from Greer Community Ministries, The Cross-Cultural Institute of America, Inc., The Haven, and Senior Centers of Spartanburg County, Inc., were each provided with a $500.00 scholarship to pay for conference expenses. The conference educated the organizations on ways to increase their capacity to support their constituency. “From the opening keynote, Fundraising is the Only Option, throughout the many workshop options, this conference offered pertinent topics to help us further our mission,” said Cindi Goodin, Executive Director of The Haven, a homeless shelter that provides emergency/temporary shelter and supportive services for women and families who have found themselves without any other viable options. “Our Board of Directors had been trying to develop a fundraising strategy and this conference provided us with the information and tools to learn how to do what we must do. It was a tremendous boost to our organization.” As The Spartanburg County Foundation continues to grow, it will pursue future collaborative opportunities. “Through collaboration we are able to greatly expand our initiatives,” said Mary Thomas, Vice-President, Programs, The Spartanburg County Foundation. “We are better equipped with the ability to provide area nonprofits with the resources and funding necessary to accomplish change.”
