Founders Group International (FGI) to support Habitat for Humanity of Horry County's mission through corporate sponsorship.
Habitat for Humanity of Horry County has announced the corporate sponsorship of Founders Group International (FGI) for 2022.
The golf course management company will partner with Habitat in various capacities, supporting the organization’s mission to provide opportunities for safe, decent, and affordable housing within Horry County.
“We’re excited to begin what we think will be a long-lasting partnership with Founders Group International,” stated Jason Greene, Executive Director of Habitat for Humanity of Horry County. “Their engagement with the Habitat mission and commitment to our community is unwavering. We’re grateful for the opportunity to receive their support.”
As part of the newly formed partnership, Founder’s Group International is hosting both of Habitat for Humanity of Horry County’s annual fundraising events in 2022.
Derby Day, held May 7th at Pine Lakes Country Club, was the first of the two events to be hosted by FGI. With more than 200 supporters in attendance, the event raised a record $10,000 more in funds than in previous years, totaling close to $50,000. Derby Day was last held in 2019.
FGI will also host Habitat’s annual golf tournament at TPC Myrtle Beach on September 14, 2022. Details surrounding the golf tournament are forthcoming.
Additional support for Habitat, as part of the partnership, will be detailed throughout the calendar year. Such support could include landscaping assistance at current Habitat home builds and more.
“Habitat for Humanity does vital work throughout Horry County, and we are delighted to aid them in their mission, beginning with Derby Day,” said Steve Mays, president of Founders Group International. “We are looking forward to this partnership and doing our part to help make the Grand Strand an even better place to call home.”
Founders Group International is Myrtle Beach’s leading golf management company. FGI manages 21 Myrtle Beach area golf courses including TPC Myrtle Beach, Grande Dunes Resort Club and Myrtle Beach National Golf Club, to name a few.
