AllSouth Annual Soldiers & Vets Charity Golf Tournament
AllSouth originally began in 1960 as Fort Jackson Federal Credit Union. Our foundation was built on supporting the military, and because of this, it continues to be one of the main focuses of our community giving. One way we accomplish this is by hosting our annual Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament.
We started the tournament in 1996 to celebrate our military roots and raise funds for organizations in the Midlands and throughout South Carolina supporting our active servicemen and women, veterans, and their families. Since it began, we have raised over $350,000 for organizations like:
- Honor Flight
- Friends of Fisher House
- Big Red Barn Retreat
- Hidden Wounds
- Transitions Homeless Center
Through sponsorships and donations from local businesses, individuals, and other organizations, we're able to raise both awareness and funds for these important charities that are actively making a difference in the lives of those who sacrifice so much for our country and our freedoms. Here's what some of the charity tournament's past beneficiaries had to say:
"Ten percent of all homeless individuals in South Carolina identify as a veteran. At Transitions, we have increased our ability to house homeless veterans and help them obtain permanent housing. Our work is only made possible by the support of community partners like AllSouth.
- Gavin Brown, Vice President of Advancement, Transitions Homeless Center - 2023 Beneficiary
“Partnering with AllSouth Federal Credit Union has been a true blessing. Hidden Wounds is an ‘in the weeds’ organization that helps those others have left behind. AllSouth has made it possible for us to bring mental health first aid trainings to veterans and those who serve veterans at no cost to them. AllSouth has chosen to join the fight in a big way, and we are truly grateful for their contribution to our fight.”
Lance Newman, Executive Director of Hidden Wounds – 2022 Beneficiary
“It is truly an honor to be chosen by AllSouth Federal Credit Union as the recipient of the Soldiers and Vets Charity Golf Tournament. The community support for the event was outstanding and we are unbelievably humbled by all those that showed up to be a part of this wonderful event.”
Sutton Shaw, Volunteer Executive Director of the Big Red Barn Retreat – 2021 Beneficiary
We host our tournament annually in May with various sponsorship opportunities available including the opportunity to sponsor a soldier or veteran to play in the tournament. As we aim to grow the tournament each year and increase both our donation and community impact, we invite you to partner with us. Our goal is to continue supporting organizations that serve our local communities and make the most significant impact.
