INTRODUCING OUR 2017 SOCIAL MISSION PARTNER
At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors.
We started connecting with local non-profits for our Social Mission Partnership three years ago, a program that awards organizations strengthening the fabric of our community with free advertising in each issue of Fig for one year (our prior social mission partners include St. Lawrence Place, The Nurturing Center, and Central Carolina Community Foundation).
We're thrilled to announce that in 2017 we'll be celebrating the mission of Make-A- Wish® South Carolina.
Make-A- Wish South Carolina grants wishes for children with life-threatening medical conditions. The South Carolina nonprofit believes wishes can be a game changer. In fact, medical professionals say wish experiences can improve children’s state of mind, make them more willing to comply with treatment requirements, and even influence their physical health. Former wish kids tell Make-A- Wish their wish experience improved their health and strength; gave them more confidence and the will to pursue more challenging life goals; made them more philanthropic and compassionate; and even helped save their life. The impact of a wish can last a lifetime.
Learn more about of Make-A- Wish® South Carolina in the spring issue of Columbia, releasing this March, or visit their website at sc.wish.org.
